Some of the floats to look for include:

No. 2: American Honda's "Follow Your Dreams" is the lead float in the parade, reflecting this year's theme, "Oh, The Places You'll Go." The 100-foot-long vehicle consists of three islands that display features inspired by Dr. Seuss to illustrate a child's imagination and dreams, and the fun to be had there. [Graphic]

No. 45: China Airlines' float features a pagoda towering three stories tall.
