A flower-covered statue of Peter Pan, the boy from Never-Never Land who never grew up, was the feature of Glendale?s 1954 entry in the Tournament of Roses, but the focus was on two riders, Mary Dibble and Barbara Beaven. Dibble, the 1953 Days of Verdugo queen, and Beaven, one of that year?s princesses, were selected to portray two mermaids from Never-Never Land?s lagoon. Designer C. Lewis Stanley positioned Peter Pan on a giant mushroom, his arms stretched out to protect his three friends, John, Michael and Wendy Darling.
