Rose Parade - 126 Edition: [other] The Rose Parade is an American New Year celebration that takes place on January 1st each year, unless it falls on a Sunday where it is passed to January 2nd. This parade is held in Pasadena, California, since 1890. It is the most popular parade in the United States in which around 40 motorized floats, 20 musical bands and 15 groups of horse riders participate. The president of the organising association chooses a theme each year for the parade, which inspires the people to decorate their floats. The event is broadcast on local, national and international television, thus generating an audience of hundreds of thousands. At the end of the parade, a college football game, called the Rose Bowl, is played.
