2018 Pasadena Rose Parade – New Years Day

After many years of watching the parade by standing on Colorado Blvd. or from my office building on Lake Ave. we “roughed it”. Well not really we rented a table at a local restaurant along the parade route – enjoyed brunch, watched and photographed.

Members of Pasadena’s Valley Hunt Club first staged the parade in 1890. Since then the parade has been held in Pasadena every New Year’s Day, except when January 1 falls on a Sunday. In that case, it is held on the subsequent Monday, January 2. This exception was instituted in 1893, as organizers did not wish to disturb horses hitched outside Sunday church services.

  2. Pete: Your parade pictures are wonderful! We watched the parade thinking of you and Chris and wondering if you were there this year.

    Hope we see you in 2018. OB has rotator cuff surgery tomorrow so we are headed into a few months in recovery mode.

    Love to both of you, CA
