Those lucky enough to get a spot along the Rose Parade route are treated to a two-hour parade of magnificent floral floats, talented marching bands, and high-stepping equestrians. The five-and-a-half mile Rose Parade route begins at the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena. The parade travels north on Orange Grove at a leisurely 2.5-mile per hour pace and then turns east onto Colorado Boulevard where the majority of the parade takes place. At the end of the route, the parade turns north onto Sierra Madre Boulevard and ends at Sierra Madre and Villa Street.
PROHIBITIED ITEMS ALONG THE ROSE PARADE ROUTE INCLUDE: weapons, sticks, poles, glass bottles and any items which may cause injury or interfere with the parade or spectators' enjoyment of the parade.
