The Rose Parade in Pasadena
January 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Those lucky enough to get a spot along the Rose Parade route are treated to a two-hour parade of magnificent floral floats, talented marching bands, and high-stepping equestrians. The 5 1/2-mile Rose Parade route begins at the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena. The parade travels north on Orange Grove at a leisurely 2 1/2-mile per hour pace and then turns east onto Colorado Boulevard, where the majority of the parade viewing takes place. Near the end of the route, the parade turns north onto Sierra Madre Boulevard and concludes at Villa Street.
Prohibited items along the parade route include: weapons, sticks, poles, drones, glass bottles and any items which may cause injury or interfere with the parade or spectators’ enjoyment of the parade.
