Rose Parade in Passdena

Our family is going to be going down to the LA/Riverside area before we head to the DLR for a few days. We were wondering if anyone had any advice about going to the Rose Parade on January 1st in Pasadena? I have teen kids and they are somewhat interested. I went as a kids a couple of times, but really don't remember much other than it was cold and I walked alot to get to a space I had to stand and try to see the parade. Thanks, Sandi

we went years ago, check with a travel agency and see if you can find some bleacher seats somewhere along the route. ours also had a box lunch included and bus to and from the parade.

I picked one site (below) at random to give you a little basic information plus random costs for seating.

Flowers for the Float 2012-2013 Parade Information

Rather than listing a page of sites on the Rose Parade I did a partial search and came up with these to help you especially if you are from out of the area. Of course other searches using different wording will give you more or different choices and information.

Pasadena CA Rose Parade info, route, freeways,

victory park ca parade floats

Parking will definitely be a problem plus exiting Pasadena as the west to east freeway (210) is only a couple blocks away without considering immediately branching into Fwy. 314 west and Fwy 110 south into downtown Los Angeles not
to mention the Fwy, 5 and the Fwy. 605. I suggest you check your favorite map site.

Remember floats can be viewed before and after the parade.
If after the parade visit the floats (in the Rose Parade) at Victory Park and the Pasadena Farmers Market nearby.

If a football fan head for the Rose Ball and good luck getting out of the parking lot.

Did you know ....

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

So how was it? This is on my Bucket List.
Ohio State went to the Rose Bowl the year DH and I were married, and I couldn't convince him to change our honeymoon plans to go. They haven't been since....

I watched from the comfort of my recliner. It was a very chilly California morning. At least it didn't rain. Proud mom moment.... my DD's girl scout troop worked on the Dole float putting the roses on the volcano making the lava.
