Five women ride on the float holding yellow flowers and waving to the crowd, one is under a big top made of red and orange flowers with the word "entrance" written in blue flowers. The front of the float reads "U.S. National Bank" and has a small yellow sign with number 37 on it. Two men in orange hats drive the float, and two Royal Rosarians escort the float.
