This year, 2017 The Rose Parade is Jan. 2 at 8 am. We are not part of any Television Station which we hope will give a "real" feeling to being at the 125 Rose Parade. We will also be streaming events up to, the morning of the parade. But that's not to say we are not using broadcast quality equipment, both video and audio. The Tournament of Roses has had a “Never on Sunday” tradition since 1893, the first year since the beginning of the Tournament, that New Year’s Day fell on a Sunday. The Tournament wanted to avoid frightening horses that would be hitched outside churches and thus interfering with worship services so the events were moved to the next day, January 2. Though horses are no longer outside local churches, the tradition remains to this day.
