Apply to Participate

The Rose Parade features three types of entries: floral-decorated floats sponsored by a participating corporation or community organization, equestrian units, and marching bands. The only cars that appear in the Rose Parade are those that may carry the Grand Marshal, the Mayor of Pasadena, the Rose Bowl Game Hall of Fame Inductees and the Tournament of Roses President. Many of the Rose Parade's participating organizations have long histories with the Tournament of Roses and have made numerous appearances in the parade.

To be considered for participation in a future Rose Parade, please see the appropriate application and related information.
