One of the best things about the annual Tournament of Roses parade, taking place tomorrow, is the number of volunteers that help create those beautiful floats. What does this have to do with Birmingham, you ask?

A quick drive through the Lakeview district of town had many businesses closed through New Year’s Day. All of them are taking some well-deserved rest, though the folks at Hothouse Design Studio provided one of the more interesting reasons indeed:

We here hope that all of you enjoy a Happy New Year!
