Even if you know nothing else of Pasadena, you know the Rose Parade! It's spectacular! The colorful flowers, fabulous floats, and excited crowds make for a great day! Camp out the night before to claim a close-up view of the parade! Or, if a cold night of camping isn't your style, never fear! Wake up early and bring a box of fresh coffee and extra cups to your viewing-spot-of-choice...all those cold, sleep-deprived campers will be glad to squeeze you into their prime viewing space in exchange for a hot cup of Joe!
