Mutual of Omaha is turning the corner with the 134th Tournament of Roses Parade!

You may remember last year’s entry, which took home the “Director’s Award,” and featured a series of “florographs.” This year’s float theme is “Protecting the Wild,” which ties into Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom “Protecting the Wild” video series with new episodes airing in January 2023.

And, of course, host Peter Gros will be seated on the float, serving as the Wild Kingdom guide for this year’s parade.

Protecting the Wild
Not only are the bear cubs the stars of this year’s float, they’re also featured on an episode of the new Wild Kingdom adventure, “Protecting the Wild.” The cubs- and brothers- shared an incredible journey together when they were rehabilitated following a wildfire. “Protecting the Wild” honors the cubs by donating trees in the forest to restore wildlife, air and water quality where the bear cubs were found and still call home.

You can watch the Wild Kingdom “Protecting the Wild” series here.

We’re eagerly anticipating the chance to once again see Mutual of Omaha represented in the Tournament of Roses Parade, and equally excited to be able to share this event with you and your families!
