Honda is set to lead the 125th annual Tournament of the Roses Parade with its “Keeping Dreams on Track” float, which combines historic and futuristic trains all powered by a Honda hybrid engine. The float will not only be a marvel of design and technology, but it will also be the longest float to ever grace the Rose Parade.

The “Keeping Dreams on Track” float measures an unprecedented 247 feet in length, and breaks the previous record of 207 feet set by Honda during the 2005 Rose Parade.

“Keeping Dreams on Track is an embodiment of Honda’s deeply rooted philosophy, The Power of Dreams, as well as Honda’s passion toward following those dreams to guide and inspire us to make a difference,” said Stephan Morikawa, assistant vice president of American Honda Corporate Community Relations, in a press release.

“Honda has many exciting efforts coming in 2014, and the Rose Parade marks our first opportunity to provide a sneak peek at some of these innovative Honda technologies and important new partnerships, while wishing everyone watching the Rose Parade a very happy New Year and joyous holiday season.”
