PASADENA, Calif. (April 9, 2020) – You’re invited to join the Tournament of Roses® as we host our first-ever virtual parade, featuring floats homemade by you. We’re excited to see what those creative, young minds can build! While our staff and volunteer members are diligently working on the 2021 Rose Parade® presented by Honda, we thought we’d have a little celebration along the way.

It’s easy to participate:

Imagine – What your float could be about or look like?

Gather – materials from around your house – recycled newspaper, construction paper, leaves from your yard – whatever can help bring your vision to life. (Even some of your dolls or action figures)

Build your float – anyone in your home can help!

Record a video of your float – show us what you’ve got, either in motion or standing still. We want to see it all and the special parts up close. Also, tell us a little about your float – the theme, what inspired it, what you used to make it and anything else you want to highlight!

Email us your video – send your video to by Monday, May 11.

Tune in – we’ll compile them and premiere them via Facebook Live at on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 1PM PST.
