Ar the tournament of Roses is fun to see the parade as it is being made reedy for the day. Unfortunately, we were misguided by a friend and arrived at the tail end of the Rose Parade. Actually this allowed us to ask questions and make friends in the parade.

This is always been a New Years day event for me, but it was alway on the television. This year I decided to see first hand. It was breathtakingly beautiful! The workmanship if the floats really needs to be seen up close. I look forward to going back and hope to be a volunteer. The organizers have the crowd control... More

My extended family went to see the parade in 2015. Unfortunately, it was one of the coldest parade ever. It was in the 20's... or it felt like it because we were in the shade. Most of the reviews I saw encouraged the traveler to opt for a paid seat instead of chancing it with the free-crowd. I paid premium... More

Plan and research early if you want to see the Tournament of Roses Parade, we purchased tickets for seats in the stands then lucked out getting free tickets with even better viewing!! We parked in a large parking garage then caught the train and walked from the closest stop to our seats. We were able to view the floats before... More

The Wrigley mansion is a great place to go on tours (only on select days). The people are very friendly, answer all questions. Tours are free, and about an hour. Beautiful pictures outside, too.

Spearmint Gum to the Tournament of Roses. I have attended 53 Rose Parades. Best floats on Earth! Championship bands and spectacular equestrians. It is fun to construct and decorate the floats. Tournament House is a great mansion on Orange Grove. There are some interesting exhibits inside and a diverse rose garden outside. The association does a stupendous job every year!

my daughters school was in the parade this year so I went out to follow them around to all their activities (Disney, universal, band fest, queen Mary, etc....). I have to admit that I did not e pest to be so moved by the parade - once you sit in the seats and the parade gets going (including fly over... More

I was so excited to see this parade first hand that getting up at 4am after celebrating New Years Eve with friends was not an issue. If you get a chance to go be sure to go with a tour. We had front row parking for our tour bus with our seats right across Colorado Blvd. It was in the... More

Reading other reviews reminds me how smart it is to book ahead with a tour company. We used Cartan and were very impressed. Coming from the East coast we needed to be sure of transportation, good hotel, and great seats. We got all that was advertised including float building in one of the barns - something you must see to... More
