Jan. 2nd is the date, mark you calanders.
The Tournament of Roses Parade, better known as the Rose Parade, is “America’s New Year Celebration”, a festival of flower-covered floats, marching bands, equestrians and a college football game on New Year’s Day (but moved to Monday if New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday), produced by the non-profit Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association.
The Grand Marshal for the 2012 parade is J.R. Martinez
This happens to also be the 100th birthday of Roy Rogers, we understand there will be a 75 foot float in honor of this orginal cowboy.
Book your hotel rooms early as this time of the year is always a sell out.
