Take kids to see what happens behind the scenes, get an up close and personal look at the floats featured in this year’s Rose Parade. As they get their finishing touches and decorations in this final stage of preparation, watch as flowers, fruit, seeds, bark and grasses are expertly applied to the floats. This year’s theme is “Inspiring Stories.”
Kids 5 and under are free. You can also check out the float building at second location across from the Rose Bowl Stadium ( at 700 Seco Street) – or at the Brookside Pavillion, which is wheelchair accessible. Please note that on New Years Eve the float viewing closes early to get ready for the parade! Tickets can sell out when the venues get too crowded, so get there early.
