Additional Rose Float Volunteer Decorating Opportunities Announced!

DUARTE CA, December 14, 2017- Due to popular demand, the City of Duarte and Phoenix Decorating Company are adding additional volunteer float decorating opportunities at the Phoenix Decorating Rose Float Plaza South Facility at 5400 Ornelas Drive in Irwindale California. The two opportunities are through Kiwanis International, Rose Float Club and the Petal Pushers, the official volunteer decorators for Phoenix Decorating Company.   Follow the links below to volunteer.  Each page will have a sign up sheet or link and provide a list of available shifts.

To sign up with Kiwanis International:

To sign up with the Petal Pushers:

Volunteers may sign up for any or all of the dates listed, however, Phoenix does ask that when you sign up you be prepared to work a full shift of 8 hours each time. PLEASE NOTE: For insurance purposes, all decorators MUST be at least 13 years of age.

Upon arrival for your pre-scheduled shift, volunteers will be assigned to where they are needed. You may be asked to cut flowers, glue dry seeds or decorate a certain float. Phoenix strives to make sure volunteers have a great time and feel a sense of accomplishment when they are done! (Note: you may get a bit messy too, so please wear proper working attire including close toed shoes.)

Saturday, December 30, 2017 is the official “Duarte Day” where participants will be able to help during two floral decorating shifts between 8:00 am – 4:00 pm or 4:00 pm – 11:00 pm.  Because the event filled so quickly, the City was happy to create additional volunteer opportunities with the help of Phoenix Decorating Company.  For additional information about these volunteer decorating opportunities, visit
