Cal Poly Universities won wild applause and an award for their "Bedtime Buccaneers" float in Wednesday's 125th Tournament of Roses Parade.

The entry, built by students from the Pomona and San Luis Obispo campuses, received this year's Crown City Innovation Award for best use of imagination and innovation in float design, reported City News Service.

At one time during the parade, the float stopped to eject three motorized, car-sized mini floats driven by aliens.  The aliens then drove back into the mother transport ship, City News reported.

This years marks the 52nd time in 66 years that the parade's only student-built float has received an award, according to Cal Poly Pomona.

The crowd cheered loudly along the 51/2-mile route, especially when it pssed the Cal Poly Universities student section, for the float, which focused on a young brother and sister "sailing the mighty seas of their imagination in search of bountiful treasure," according to Cal Poly's website.
