Tournament of Roses – Pasadena

Each New Year’s Day the world focuses its attention on Pasadena, California, home of the Tournament of Roses. Magnificent floral floats, the best marching bands in the country and talented equestrian units will anchor the traditional two-hour spectacle along Pasadena’s famed Colorado Boulevard. It’s a celebration more than a century old – a festival of flowers, music, and sports unequaled anywhere in the world.

Past Rose Parade tours have included San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, and San Diego. Your students will love all the amusement parks available in Southern California.

(Always held January 1, except January 2 when New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday.)
