This year I had the opportunity to see the Rose Parade Floats being prepared for the 124th Annual Rose Parade. What a sight to see! There was an array of colorful, beautiful flowers everywhere with tons of volunteers working hard to do the final touches that make us swoon when we see the beautiful floats parading down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena each year.

On the parade route you will see Raul Rodriguez’s “Mr. Rose Parade” extraordinary floats for the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade. Over the years he has created hundreds of floats drawn from nature to celebrate the world’s culture with his unique whimsical touch he brings to each design.

Dr. Jane Goodall, world’s expert on chimpanzees, is the 2013 Tournament of Roses Grand Marshal. The parade will feature an international lineup of marching bands from USA, Mexico, El Salvador and Japan. The annual procession begins at 8:00 a.m. (Pacific) on Tuesday, January 1.
