The 125th Rose Parade will be held on New Years Day, and it begins at 8:00 am in Pasadena, CA. The Rose Parade is a Southern California tradition. I still watch the parade every year. I remember attending this in person with my family. This parade is incredible, and the incredible detail which goes into the floats, and the creativity is incredible.
