Ring in the new year with America's New Year Celebration, the 131st annual Rose Parade! This year's theme, "The Power of Hope," celebrates and encourages creativity in the parade entries. As stated by the parade president, "With hope - anything, and everything is possible!" Seeing these glorious floats, marching bands and equestrian units, along with sharing the excitement of ringing in the New Year with the crowd, is truly memorable, moving experience! Once again we have our great grandstand seats located on Colorado Blvd near the start of this iconic parade. The grandstands where our seats are located are only a few rows high so you are up-close and personal with the magnificent moving floral floats, high-stepping equestrians and spirited marching bands. Enjoy an included continental breakfast with coffee prior to the parade, and a boxed lunch with champagne following. Suggested: seat cushion and/or blanket for the grandstand bench seating. The walk from the motorcoach to our seats is three short blocks. The sun is to our side so that it warms us up but doesn't affect our view of the parade.
