These days there are few parades quite like the Tournament of Roses Parade. In a day when a majority of the parades seem to be getting shorter and less what we remembered as kids. The Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA just gets better and better.
Also, the only way to watch The Rose Parade is on HGTV. Not only are there no commercials, they provide so many interesting tid bits and stories regarding the construction and intricacies of the floats. Also, no interviews and shilling of TV actors and shows. Remember when a parade was a parade, HGTV brings it to us just the way we remember. And they actually show the marching bands for more than 5 seconds. For the best sights, sounds and commentary watch the Tournament of Roses Parade on HGTV.
On Monday, January 2, 2006 at 8 a.m. (PST), millions of spectators from around the world will celebrate with the 117th Rose Parade themed It’s Magical.
