The 5½-mile parade begins at 8 a.m. (PST) on January 1, commencing a 2½-hour procession of imaginative flowery floats, spirited marching bands, and majestic equestrian teams making their way along Orange Grove, Colorado, and Sierra Madre boulevards between sidewalks and grandstands teeming with an estimated 700,000 spectators.

Grandstand tickets are available for purchase from February 1–December 31 from Sharp Seating Company, the official Tournament of Roses® grandstand seating company, 626-795-4171, sharpseating.com.

Float Decorating & Viewing
You can get involved in float decorating in two ways: Before the parade at three locations, you can watch as others decorate the floats (fees apply), or you can actually participate in the decorating (schedules vary by location, and considerable waiting periods should be expected). Please visit the Tournament of Roses website.
