The Rose Parade, also known as the Tournament of Roses and the Rose Parade presented by Honda, is part of "Americas New Year Celebration" held in Pasadena, California each year on New Years Day (or on Monday, January 2 if New Years Day falls on a Sunday). The parade includes flower-covered floats, marching bands, and equestrians and is followed by the Rose Bowl college football game. It is produced by the non-profit Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association.
