"Ride of Your Life" Testimonials

2018 Lions Float rendering
This unique opportunity was offered for the first time in 2010 and was a great success. Here are some riders' comments.

"Thank you for all your great hospitality and hard work. I will treasure the past four days and talk about them often."

-Lion George Graham, Pleasant Valley Lions, District 4-A3

"We both agree that this was the experience of a lifetime! The entire event and people we met were very special."

-Veronica & PDG Dick Walworth, San Diego, District 4-L6

"After watching the Rose Bowl Parade on TV for over sixty years, we started to research how to experience the parade firsthand including working on a float. The "Ride of Your Life" gave us this awesome opportunity and was way beyond our dreams. Not only did we ride on the float down Colorado Boulevard with over 700,000 watching; we got to work on the Lions Float which had over 11,055 flowers and more than 100,000 seeds of 50 different types on the inspiring float "Camps for All Abilities". Working with Lions nationwide was terrific."

-Lion Donna & PDG Philip Wheeler, Vermont, District 45
