Purchased bleacher seats from Sharp Seating Company. They boast themselves as the only provider of seats for the Rose Bowl Parade. I can't tell you enough how happy we were with the entire days activities. From assigned parking to assigned seats. To Post parade travel to the game. They had representatives at every step of the way. I would recommend... More

Pre-purchase bleacher seating and parking is highly recommended. Your car is close to seating and you do not have to fight the crowds. The bleachers were a little cramped, but it was cool this year. The parade was fun filled with floats and bands. It was impressive. Get there early (by 6AM) and take in the people watching. We also... More

Pre-purchase of reserved seating and parking is recommended. Your car is close to seating and you dont have to fight the crowds. They have restrooms available just for reserved seating so there is a shorter or no wait line, just have your ticket. The bleachers were a little cramped but was glad as it was cooler than what we are... More

We went to the Tournament of Roses parade this year and love it. Our son was marching in the parade, so we went on a family trip. Outstanding. We loved it. Our seats were perfect. We were right after the first turn where all the camera crews were. The floats were so nice. It really is a must do. The... More

WOW! Just got back from our Rose Parade 'Experience' and I have to say it was a great choice! I was a little nervous doing a package deal, but what an awesome experience! Barbara, our tour guide was so much fun and knowledgable about things dealing with the parade! The Sheraton was an awesome hotel to stay at. The tours... More

Do a total tour - including pre parade float viewing , parade grandstand seats and game seats We used Diamond Travel based in Phoenix. You have to see it in person to believe it! I know Pasadena has been doing this for years but it will still amaze you to see them handle the crowds. Although, I would not want... More

We did it all, pre parade float viewing, post parade float viewing.... crowded but that's what I expected. Luckily, we had purchased tickets through Sharp Seating... we went the day before the parade... More

This was our first time watching the parade in person and it was wonderful. We had reserved seats on Orange Grove and had a great view of the parade. The day before we walked around and looked at some of the floats while they were being judged. Then in the morning before we sat in our seats we were able... More

Outstanding!! First Class!! If you want the VIP experience this is the tour to take. Because you are with the Association, you get priority treatment at the float building barns, game and parade. Tour guide, Barbara, was wonderful and very knowledgeable! Hassle free way to see the parade and bowl game.

The floats are amazing up close, TV doesn't do it justice. We helped decorate at burbank, the people there were very nice and friendly, I would decorate with them again if I were ever here Again this time of year. My kids had fun too, very memorable vacation. We bought the reserved seating, was glad, because the mobs of people... More
