Ben Higgins and some other fan favorites from The Bachelor franchise will ride on a float to kick off the New Year during the 2016 Rose Parade Presented by Honda.

Season 20 The Bachelor star Ben Higgins and Bachelor in Paradise standouts Jade Roper, Tanner Tolbert, Lacy Faddoul, Ashley Iaconetti, and Samantha Steffen will take center stage on a spectacular float for the 127th Rose Parade on Friday, January 1, 2016 at 11AM ET/PT with live coverage presented by ABC.

The 55-foot-long by 22-foot-high float is inspired by The Bachelor's famous fantasy dates which typically film in exotic locations such as on remote tropical islands.

To portray the parade's theme of "Find Your Adventure," Higgins will be sitting on a lifeguard stand surrounded by crashing waves, white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, bobbing dolphins, sea creatures, a treasure chest filled with custom-designed engagement rings, and of course, red roses among many other floral scenes.

Iaconetti and Steffen, who just appeared on last summer's second edition of Bachelor in Paradise, will be relaxing in a working hot tub. They both also competed for Chris Soules' heart on The Bachelor's nineteenth season with Roper.

Roper and Tolbert got engaged at the conclusion of Bachelor in Paradise's second season. Faddoul got engaged to current husband Marcus Grodd at the end of the show's first season, and they actually tied the knot on-camera to commence Season 2.

Higgins -- who first sought after Kaitlyn Bristowe's affection on Season 11 of The Bachelorette, along with Tolbert -- will embark on his own journey to find love Monday night, January 4 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
