The Hettema Group is excited to announce that the Pasadena Tournament of Roses has named Phil Hettema as one of three judges for the 2020 Float Awards. This is a dream come true for Phil, a native of Pasadena, who grew up watching the Rose Parade every year and has contributed to the design of theme park parades throughout his career.
Phil is in good company with the two other 2020 Float Awards judges: Hitomi Gilliam, a world- renowned Japanese Canadian flower artist, innovator and educator, who has guest-designed around the globe; and Lilit Khatchaturian, the Founder and CEO of Pavé Fleur, a revolutionary system for shipping hand-crafted, premium floral arrangements anywhere in the U.S. within 24 hours.
The award-winning floats will be announced the morning of January 1, 2020 on the front steps of Tournament House. For more information see: https://tournamentofroses.com/tournament-of-roses-announces-2020-float-judges/
