Leave a Comment

The 122nd Tournament of Roses Parade, with the theme “Building Dreams, Friendships & Memories”, took place on January 1, 2011 in Pasadena, California. In all, 22 bands performed and 47 floats dazzled the crowd. Some floats had whimsical themes featuring dogs boogie boarding and jumping into a pool, some shot fireworks and ribbons, and some marked anniversaries happening in 2011. A towering float featuring Pac-Man hoisting a birthday cake celebrates the video game's 30th anniversary this year, another float marks the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks by honoring its victims.

Staged every year since 1890, The Rose Parade has grown from a local Pasadena institution to a national ceremony that's very equivalent to the New Year's Eve ball drop in Times Square.
