Pasadena’s Rose Parade Canceled Due To Pandemic
The Rose Parade will not make the traditional march down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena this coming New Year’s Day, making it one more thing the coronavirus pandemic has messed up in Southern California. A decision on whether to play the Rose Bowl football game, though, is still in the air, officials said.
The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, which puts on the annual events, announced the cancellation Wednesday, following lengthy consultations with sponsors, bands, float builders and health experts.
David Eads, Executive Director and CEO, said:
“We could not delay a decision because delaying the decision would just be more financial risk for our float builders, more financial risk for our bands that are needing to book travel and do contracts, (and) with hotels and arrangements to come to Pasadena."
