EXECUTIVE OFFICE COORDINATOR

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association is a volunteer organization that hosts America’s New Year Celebration with the Rose Parade presented by Honda, the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual, and a variety of accompanying events. The earliest Tournament of Roses welcomed 3,000 spectators to its first parade filled with orange blossom decked horse-drawn carriages. Today, the parade floats are a marvel of state-of-the-art technology, all tucked away beneath flowers and other all-natural materials. Viewers and visitors experience the beauty of the floral floats along with spirited marching bands and high-stepping equestrian units along the 5 ½ mile route down Colorado Boulevard. The Rose Parade is one of the largest televised, live entertainment events. With a viewing audience of more than 37 million individuals, the Rose Parade is carried live on New Year’s Day by ABC, NBC, Univision, Hallmark Channel, RFD-TV and KTLA 5 in Southern California. The parade is also streamed live by Funny or Die.
