2012 Rex Procession
“Lore of the Ancient Americas”
Long before European explorers visited American shores sophisticated and diverse cultures thrived throughout North, Central and South America. Filled with powerful symbols and images, a rich tradition of storytelling helped preserve the history and mythology of these ancient cultures. Now these stories, images and traditions inspire the design of the floats of the 2012 Rex Procession, each float illustrating a story told long before Columbus.
