Pasadena Tournament of Roses Día de los Muertos


A tradition in Mexico and Central America that goes back more than 3,000 years, Día de los Muertos is an annual holiday that is now celebrated around the world. A celebration of life and death, the holiday spans two-days, during which it is believed that the spirit world and the real world become one, even if only for a moment. When it comes to traditions, festivities and flowers – we get the appeal. As an organization that’s all about a rose, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses can appreciate that the marigold holds such a prestigious place in this celebration.

On November 5, 2023 the Pasadena Tournament of Roses announced the winners of the fourth annual Día de los Muertos art competition, a celebration of art and culture, in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles, LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, Pasadena Police Foundation, Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary and Wife of the Party.
