“Tournament House in Pasadena / Hidden Gem?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Actual Tournament House visit was probably "only" a Very Good/4, however these people put on the best parade in the world.....so I'm upgrading to 5.

Tournament House visit exceeded expectations for being interesting and entertaining. And, it is free. Sprit of volunteerism well-represented by the friendly guides.

Very professional group, of people that are people friendly, not snobs. They are interested in what you have to say. I look forward to working with them every year.

“Always a treat and a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I grew up in So. Calif. and our church group used to decorate the floats. Now that I am an adult, I am lucky enough to have some wonderful friends who live close to the parade route. So, we take advantage of their hospitality every couple of years to go see the parade. Everyone should experience it once in a lifetime. The floats are amazing. Every inch covered by a living plant. The bands and equestrian units are always very impressive. Everything is much better than it looks on TV. Splurge and buy some seats along the parade route and enjoy. It is one of the best things you can experience!

“Fun tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The tour began with a video of the history of the parade, and it put a whole new light on the parade for me. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and truly enjoyed his work. We saw how they choose the queen and her court, where the committee has meetings regarding the parade and some of the furnishings and decor of one of the original Wrigley mansions. We enjoyed the tour and looking at many of the roses growing alongside the mansion as well.
