The Rose Bowl Parade, many people watch it in the warmth of their homes while some brave the California "cold" and attend. Let the activity planning start January 1st!!! Yes, I attended the fresh and beautiful parade in Pasadena, CA. My friends and I decided to take the California Metro, how it reminded me of the fun subway rides in NYC. I was happy that the crowded predictions of the Metro did not happen.
We ended up walking from the end of the Parade route to the middle, where we found some amazing spots to watch. While walking down the Parade route, you could tell some people were there since early the night before. Apparently Pasadena does not allow anyone to start camping out until 11pm on the 31st... I do not think I would ever like to spend my New Years reserving a spot for the Rose Bowl Parade, but I will not judge. If you are in the LA on January 1st I do recommend going early on the 1st, perhaps leave home around 7am the latest to find decent spots. The first float passed by and I was amazed at the intricacy and detail on each float, wow!! words will not do justice...
Each float representing a country/town or organization. A few of my favorites: Disney's Adventure Land showing off Cars, City of Burbank's, Beverly Hills Animal Adoption, and Downey's.
Along with the floats are Bands from around the World and of course each participating college had their band accompany the college floats.
Okay, sorry for the picture overload!! Even all of these pictures do not do the parade justice, I highly recommend attending the Rose Bowl Parade and make a day out of it in Pasadena! Hope y'all enjoyed the photos! xoxo
