Burbank won the Animation Trophy today for their float “Barnyard Aces” at this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. 

The float featured a scale Stearman PT-17, which reached heights of more than 30 feet and performed barrel rolls.

Glendale’s float “America’s Pride,” which displayed a soaring bald eagle, didn’t win an award. 

But as the parade’s last float, it got a military flyover and a standing ovation from the audience.
