Do you love a parade? Do you love a parade that has been marched for 121 previous years, comes covered in petals and seeds, includes a ton of marching bands, precedes a major college football match-up, draws in thousands of people to the streets of Pasadena before dawn, and gets broadcast all over the world on New Year's Day? Okay, well, you probably love the Rose Parade. If you're planning on heading to Pasadena to join the throngs of intrepid over-nighters (or early morning-ers) here is the route map. For those less fond of the annual event, here's exactly where you don't want to be tomorrow morning.
