FOTOS: The preparation of the Rose Parade regresa después de un año de pausa

El ‘Desfile de las Rosas’ regresará este sábado in Pasadena, California.

Para muchos, el retorno will be visto como un alegre respiro de dos dolorosos años de pandemia. Pero el desfile, y su enormous multitud de todo el país, llega in a difficult moment. The infecciones por coronavirus y las hospitalizaciones están vanishing nuevamente debido to the variant Ómicron altamente contagiosa. Plenty of interruptions.

Dejando a lado los desafíos, the regreso del Rose Parade will be welcome for aquellos that the aprecian.

Masked volunteers work on the floats of the Rose Parade.

The return of the parade was not without logistical challenges. Volunteers gave up because of the Omicron surge, and float builders struggled to obtain materials due to high costs and supply chain issues.

“I thought they would be understaffed because of the pandemic, so I thought I would participate,” said Mary Ann Cosgrove, as she works on the “Masked Singer” tank.
