The Pasadena Tournament of Roses is an annual tradition to kick off the New Year. The parade began in the 1890s as a way for Californians to celebrate the beautiful weather and abundance of flowers available even in the middle of winter. Today, it is held in conjunction with the Rose Bowl college football game.

The parade features marching bands, motorized floats, and dozens of equestrian acts every year. Included in this year’s equestrian events are:

  • The All-American Cowgirl Chicks

  • RFD-TV 100 Palomino Groups

  • Scripps Miramar Saddlebreds

  • Calgary Stampede Showriders

  • Los Angeles Police Department Metropolitan Division Mounted Platoon

  • Medieval Times

  • Arizona Mini Mystique
