pasadena rose parade

In 2019, celebrate the New Year by watching the 130th Rose Parade in Pasadena. For 130 years, this exciting festival of roses has been a family friendly way to celebrate the New Year. This year’s Rose Parade will take place January 1st at 8am with the Rose Bowl college football game to follow. If you’re planning on going to the pasadena rose parade, consider staying at hotel rooms in burbank ca.


The Rose Parade was originally created in order to showcase the amazing weather in California and so all the parade floats were made out of flowers and roses. Today, the tradition continues with floats having to be decorated with only all natural materials including flowers, seeds and flora. The parade route covers 5 ½ miles, with most of the parade taking place on Colorado Blvd. While you can purchase tickets to sit in the grandstand bleachers, simply finding a spot on a sidewalk along the parade route is allowed and also free. But come early, locals are known to camp out the night before in order to find good spots for the parade!

After the parade, the action will head to the Rose Bowl where the college football match that everyone has been waiting for will take place. At the Rose Bowl game, traditionally the winner of the Big Ten and Pac-12 leagues will compete together. At this year’s 105th Rose Bowl Game, Ohio State will play against Washington. Pregame activities begin at 1pm including tailgates, appearances by the Rose Queen and Royal Court and more. The game is scheduled to begin at 2pm. Tickets for the game are now available.
