      The post is more about the Rose Parade than George Lucas.

      However, Lucas has had quite the career.

      If you don’t have “seeing the Rose Parade live” on your list of things to do before you die – put it on!!
      The floats are amazing, the bands send chills up your spine, the atmosphere is electric.
      Been there 10x. Here’s a hint – orange grove/colorado(the turn) is a great party the night before and one of the best spots that morning. Bring your flask though – it’s cold.
