12-28-06 Oklahoma’s Centennial celebration kicks off big time on January 1st at the annual Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, California. Crews have been busy putting the floats together and KXII recently got a sneak peek at the opening float…dedicated completely to Okies! Doyle Davis of Ardmore took pictures of the float when she was in California mid-December. She also got to see the Oklahoma float as a work in progress. Oklahoma natives and celebrities will be on hand for the parade. Broadway Superstar Kristin Cenoweth and Miss America 2006, Jennifer Berry, are among those that will be a part of the two and a half minute kickoff to this year’s annual parade. A few Carter County musicians will also be in the opening band.
