Rose Parade

The Tournament of Roses Parade, better known as the Rose Parade, is America's New Year Celebration held in Pasadena, California, a festival of flower-covered floats, marching bands, equestrians and the Rose Bowl college football game on New Year's Day (but moved to Monday if New Year's Day falls on a Sunday), produced by the non-profit Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association.

50 Things Every Rotarian Should Know About Rotary (by Steve Garret, District Governor 1994-1995) 38 - ROTARY FLOAT IN ROSE PARADE The Rotary International float in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade is undoubtedly the largest public relations project of the Rotary clubs of the United States and Canada. Since 1924 a Rotary float has been entered 18 times including every year since 1981. The famous Pasadena, California, parade is seen by an estimated 125 million people via worldwide television. Funds for the construction of the Rotary parade entry are voluntarily given by Rotarians and clubs in the U.S. and Canada. The cost of designing, constructing and flower covering a Rose Parade float begins at about $120,000. A multi-district Rotary committee in Southern California coordinates planning of the Rotary float and provides hundreds of volunteer hours of service. The Rotary float must portray the annual parade theme, usually depicting one of the worldwide service programs of Rotary International. Each Ne ...

It's strange to see early bird Rose Parade campers arrayed next to Burnside's chronically homeless. I imagine turf wars breaking out between suburban grandmothers and tattooed stringy dudes so tan it looks like they've been cured, then reconciling over a couple of Steel Reserves and wine coolers and a box of Voodoo Doughnuts.
Footage of Los Altos's appearance in the 1978 Rose Parade has recently been obtained. This includes video clips from three networks for a full three minutes of coverage of the Conquerors stepping off on Orange Grove, negotiating the turn at Colorado Boulevard and the media march in front of the Norton Simon Museum. The 1977 Marching Season DVD released last Christmas has been edited to include this previously unseen footage. To obtain a copy of the DVD, send your name and address with a check for $20 made out to the Los Altos Band Boosters to me at 3471 Belle River Drive, Hacienda Heights CA, 91745. For those who purchased the 1977 Marching Season DVD, send me your name and mailing address and I will send you a replacement. Meanwhile, here are the Conquerors making their 2nd Rose Parade Appearance in this photo just recently obtained from the Tournament of Roses Association in Pasadena.

The Rose Parade is taking place on Sunday, June 22nd from around 11:30 to whenever the parade happens to end. Mme.

What a lovely day. Started out with Vegan brunch pizza at sizzle pie, followed by a visit to Powell's books where we got Appetite For Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, and we now have a plan and no more storage payment after next month. So I would say everything is coming up roses in the city of roses right before the Rose parade.

2nd ANNUAL FLOW SHOW FOR HOMELESS RIGHTS. On Friday, June 6th we will be doing a glow toy flow show as part of the Right2DreamToo homeless camp's "pitch-a-tent" festival meant to publicize the issue of homelessness in Portland. Come support activists doing great work protecting and working to transition our most desperate neighbors. Haven, Zach, and I did it last year but we'd like to have more performers this year. It will be right on the streets of downtown with potentially large Rose Festival crowds as it coincides with people campling out for the Rose Parade the following morning. All individuals and acts welcome - bellydance? acro? k-8 passing (I'll have mine). PM me if you're interested.

For those of you who are thinking that you can let out a giant sigh of relief that baseball season is here... Don't do it! It is all a hoax! Bud Selig stands for all that is bad in America. His complicity with steroids, the unwillingness to listen to Pete Rose on reinstatement are a few of his lesser crimes against society. His most ridiculous crime against society however, has been allowing other, less significant games to be played before the "historical and traditional" "opening day" in Cincinnati. The Reds earned this right by being the birthplace of professional baseball. In 1869 they fielded the first professional baseball team. They also put on a show for opening day that rivals the Rose Parade. It is an atmosphere like no other. It is the dawn of a new season with prospects of winning the World Series. And it starts at 4:05 on Monday. That is when you will hear my sigh!
Amazing way to start the New Year Singing on a float at the rose parade: ) ...How did you start ?!
I'm excited to be again at the big, world-famous Cologne Carnival 'Rose Monday Parade' today. :)
When I say "parade" people think it's like Rose Parade. NOT.

We just finished spending a weekend with the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs. Saturday was the March Meeting which is a special session of the Rebekah Assembly of California. One of the highlights was the unveiling of the odd Fellows and Rebekahs Rose Parade Float for 2015. It is a depiction of the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery? It will be a very moving float.

Ok, who left the Rose Parade float on the Oscar stage?
So that's where all the leftover roses from the Rose Parade go. And they must have been stored in a nuclear plant because they're ginormous
The Oscars just figured out a use for all those leftover roses from the Rose Bowl Parade.
All those roses on the Oscar Stage makes it eligible to be a float in the Rose Parade
That's the reason I don't like network coverage of Rose Bowl Parade. They talk more about guests than the floats.

Nearly seven decades ago, the U.S. government quietly disbanded the group of women aviators who dutifully served during World War II. A new float in the high-profile Rose Parade will honor this forgotten group, reminding the nation of their courage and contributions.

PHYLLIS ELLIOT HESSE PHYLLIS ELLIOT HESSE Phyllis Elliot Hesse, born Oct. 4, 1917, in Pomona, Calif., passed away February 24, 2014, in Green Valley, Ariz., at age 96. The youngest of seven children, Phyllis grew up in Southern California where her father operated a citrus ranch. Her mother died when she was just two and a half years of age. She was raised by her father and older siblings and remembered taking naps in an orange crate while her father worked the grove. After graduating from Pomona High School and Pomona Junior College, Phyllis went on to Santa Barbara State Teacher's College, aspiring to be a kindergarten teacher. Chosen to be "Miss Pomona," she rode in the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena and helped promote the Los Angeles County Fair, which was always held in Pomona. Phyllis married Howard Hesse in 1939, and they raised four children while always active in the schools, community and sports. They first lived in Long Beach, Calif., until the outbreak of WWII. Phyllis was pregnant with their ...

Just watched an awesome documentary called "Of Two Minds," which was about Bipolar Disorder. A lot of it was shot in L.A. and I kept recognizing stuff, like the science building at Pasadena City College, apartments on Orange Grove (the street where the Rose Parade starts) in Pasadena, The Art District in Downtown LA, the hills of Silverlake, an apartment right next to Glendale Adventist Medical Center. It really made me miss my home! But I do have to say, the IE has significantly grown on me, specifically thanks to my awesome co-workers, specifically Joel Labha and Tryphena Lazar; and Angela Cunningham and Colleen Rose!! And all the wonderful people at my church!
Parade party for Alumni at St. Rose tomorrow, March 2 - be sure to stop by!
I remember one New Year's Day where it rained during the Rose Parade & all the floats got soggy & fell apart, lol.
I am so glad the Scully family got to enjoy the Rose parade experience with Vin. What a great once in a lifetime experience!

Bill Armstrong Bill Armstrong, left, celebrated his 99th birthday recently with his son Alan, right, and daughters Lea and Lani. Armstrong, who once bought and sold a lot on Malibu Road for $4,000, has lived in Malibu for 64 years since moving to Latigo Shore Drive in 1950. Posted: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 11:00 am | Updated: 11:05 am, Wed Feb 5, 2014. By Melonie Magruder / Special to The Malibu Times | 0 comments A couple of weeks ago, Bill Armstrong had a birthday. His son Alan drove Bill to Spruzzo’s in Bill’s 1924 Pierce Arrow Runabout Roadster, where he enjoyed a lunch with his children Alan, Lea Anderson and Lani Netter. His wish this year? To celebrate his 100th birthday next January. Amstrong, now 99, has lived in the same house on Latigo Shore Drive in Malibu since 1950, or 64 years. The Joan Crawford drama “Mildred Pierce” was filmed at the house next door a few years earlier, in 1945, and one of his neighbors was Micky Moore, the veteran filmmaker who passed away last year at age 98. ...

Panagbenga Festival (English: Flower Festival) is a month-long annual Flower Festival occurring in Baguio, the summer capital of the Philippines.[1] The term is of Malayo-Polynesian origin, meaning "season of blooming".[1] The festival, held during the month of February, was created as a tribute to the city's flowers and as a way to rise up from the devastation of the 1990 Luzon earthquake.[2] The festival includes floats that are decorated with flowers not unlike those used in Pasadena's Rose Parade. The festival also includes street dancing, presented by dancers clad in flower-inspired costumes, that is inspired by the Bendian, an Ibaloi dance of celebration that came from the Cordillera region. Aside from economic boosts from tourism, the festival also helped the younger generation of indigenous people to rediscover their culture's old traditions. The indigenous people was first wary with government-led tourism because of the threat that they will interfere or change their communities' rituals.[3]

I found my first Ipod (circa 2005/6?). This is what I have to report: Top 4 plays include: Minus the Bear, Pedro the Lion, Wu-Tang and Barry White. A surprising find was Robbie Delong's single "War of Words", all of my playlist titles suggest I was constantly" pre-funking", or "getting ready", or seducing someone, going on road trips or doing shots of Tequila. My highest rated song (4stars) was "Pour me Another" by Atmosphere and the last song that I had played on it was "Rose Parade" by Elliot Smith on November 11th 2008. I was a great drunk, slightly slutty, sad undergrad. Memories.

2015 Rose Parade Theme Statement - Inspiring Stories- The 2015 theme allows us to reflect on and appreciate the many people around us who elevate the human spirit by who they are, what they have done and what they continue to do. It pays tribute to those who have loved unconditionally, persevered courageously, endured patiently and accomplished much on behalf of others. They maybe "heros" or "stars" to some, but they don't seek such titles. They may be kind, resilient, free-spirited or intensely focused, and though different from one another, they are all inspiring because they have overcome obstacles, achieved the unthinkable, given immeasurably or sacrificed unselfishly. Whether for justice, for charity, or for any other good, they do so humbly and with resolve. It is the story of their journey that enriches our lives regardless of the fulfillment of the purpose. Amazing. Don't forget our float drawing vote on Tuesday the 25th at 7:00pm.

Now she’s on a mission to tank SeaWorld as it battles bad publicity from “Blackfish,” a CNN documentary on the lives of orcas at its theme parks. “SeaWorld is on its last leg and won’t be able to survive much longer,” Rose told The Post. “Beating down on them now won’t give them time to recover.” The seventh-grade honors student was arrested at the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 1 after darting in front of a SeaWorld float with her mom and 17 other protesters.

The TODAY show by openly promoting Hoda and Kathy Lee drinking alcohol in their shows every morning has demonstrated highly irresponsible journalistic/media judgement. Hoda had 2 drinks during the entire Rose Parade to show off she was drinking! In the U.S. excessive alcohol use is the 3rd leading lifestyle-related cause of death for people in the United States each year. Alcohol use poses additional problems for underage drinkers and pregnant women. Please join me in boycotting the program. Laurissa, Linda T., DMarie, Moon and Star Gazers, Sparrow, Bridgette, Wendy, Diane, Kathy, Kathleen, Renee, Pam, Raquel, Lore, Betsy, Julia, Debbie, Nancy, Monisha, Jamie, Shirley, and anyone who cares about reducing the number of alcohol related deaths and related problems in this country including interpersonal and sexual violence, car crashes, etc. Every year we lose 5,000 young people under the age of 21 to alcohol related causes.

So Denise may regale you with her story of how Lynn Swann gave her a rose at the Rose Parade yesterday. What she will fail to leave out of the story is the fact that she was screaming "Jerry! Jerry!" at him trying to grab his attention thinking he was Jerry Rice. I, embarrassed for her, had to inform her that it was Lynn Swann and not Jerry Rice whose attention she was trying to grab. Had Lynn known that she thought he was Jerry Rice me thinks he may have retracted his offer of the rose.
