Pasadena Tournament of Roses

Come with us and experience the behind-the-scenes magic of the legendary International Tournament of Roses.

If this parade is on your bucket list, then join Escapees for the 135th Tournament of Roses, where this year’s theme is, “Celebrating a World of Music: The Universal Language.”

 This parade travels 5 ½ miles down Colorado Blvd and features four types of entries: equestrian units, bands, non-profit organizations and the floral-decorated floats entered by the participating corporations.
