A celebration more than a century old – a festival of flowers, music and sports unequaled anywhere else in the world. It's America's New Year Celebration, a greeting to the world on the first day of the year, and a salute to the community spirit and love of pageantry that have thrived in Pasadena for more than 100 years.
The fun begins when the 125th Rose Parade presented by Honda marches down Colorado Boulevard on Wednesday, January 1, 2014. This year famed Dodgers broadcaster, Vin Scully, will serve as the grand marshal of the 2014 Rose Parade in Pasadena. The theme, “Dreams Come True”, will be the inspiration for the magnificent floats, marching bands and equestrian units. Thousands will line the streets to watch as the Tournament of Roses Queen, Royal Court and floats cruise the 5.5- mile parade route. Whether in person or on television, the Rose Parade is time-honored tradition for welcoming the first day of the year. The 125th Rose Parade presented by Honda will be broadcast on multiple stations and networks. Please check local listings.
