Charles Meier, the youngest designer in Rose Parade history, designed his first float when he was 13. He won a design contest for the city of South Pasadena. The float, titled "Star Stuck!" depicts two aliens playing tug of war with a spaceship. Meier rode on the float as an astronaut during the 1992 Rose Parade.
