DOLE’s award-winning float “Preserving Paradise” honored the unsurpassed beauty of Thailand where DOLE grows some of their fruit with responsible and sustainable growing and operating practices. 
The float featured a temple styled after Thailand’s opulent royal palace and captured Thailand’s ornate and unique architecture. A life-like elephant draped in floral jewels and tapestries, a sculpted tiger and two leopards all joined to witness Thailand’s ongoing preservation of wildlife conservation. To celebrate the diversity of Thailand, 20 Thai dancers dressed in traditional Thai costumes performed amongst the exotic and rare flowers from across the world and, of course, fresh and healthy fruit grown by DOLE just for the Rose Parade.
