Rose Parade 2016, everything but the floats

Rose Parade 2016

Rose Bowl Parade 2016

The coolest band from Japan-dance steps in the routine, energetic music and sweet uniforms

The Rose Bowl Parade is awesome to see in person.  You have to get there the night before and camp out or get there early in the morning to find parking, walk to the route, etc.  Or you can rent a spot to park your RV-woo hoo!  We parked at about 5 pm on the 31st, had a nice dinner, Target run for all those last minute things, I slept through midnight, and got up at a reasonable time to walk 1 block to the route.

For some reason we need a fancy car to start the parade.

I love the marching bands-I remember how much work it is to get it looking even halfway decent.  And then it is cold at the start but gets too hot near the end of a parade...big hand to everyone out there!

I found the long skirts unusual for the flag flippers, but I've been out of band for 25 years!

Like the hats!

Must have oldy-timey cars.

Jousting horses

Great routine and sweet outfits.

That's right, there is a football game associated with all this

Oh Stanford Band I love you so!

Impressive-especially if you remember they do this the whole route!
