Mapping Out the Madness: Rose Parade

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

The LA Times has compiled a handy interactive map to help aid in your Tournament of Roses parade planning.

You can use the map to view road closures, metro routes, parking locations, grandstand locations and, our personal favorite, the post-parade viewing area where all the floats will be on display. It's kind of like backstage at an awards-show, when you get to see all the gorgeousness and garishness up close.

Whether you think the parade is tacky or wacky or simply a mad mess of traffic and bodies and chaos, you can't deny the power of the float: how do they get all those flowers to make such interesting shapes?
