Rose Parade – 123rd – couldn’t take place on a more beautiful morning. Sunny weather, high 70s, greeted visitors from around the world and the Pasadena locals and made for a spectacular parade route!
Excitement was building from stealth fighters flying overhead to the Pasadena police motorcycles getting the parade goers excited about the upcoming entertainment. High spirits, many smiles and a great atmosphere greeted all.
So here are some behind the scenes and the Rose Parade float photos that I’ve captured. Enjoy!!!
Don’t forget that you can view the floats after the parade at Victory Park. You can see all the floats immediately after the Parade from 1 pm until 5 pm and then again on January 3rd from 7 am until 5 pm. Please note that 7 am to 9 am is for special viewing needs admissions only. All regular admissions are from 9 am until 5 pm. Price is $10 per person. Please refer to parking instructions and directions to Victory Park at the official Tournament of Roses site here.
