Rose Parade HOP

Pasadena Tournament of Roses

December 28, 2016 – January 4, 2017

Hosts: Ed and Sandy Kruty

Co-hosts: Kathy and Darold Perry

Experience the behind-the-scenes magic of the legendary Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade and have your fairy tale come true!


Help decorate the award-winning floats; smell the floral aroma, the cocoa and coffee beans; see the vibrant colors of the flowers on the floats and learn how the floats are constructed.



In VIP setting, relax and enjoy Equestfest and watch majestic horses dressed in magnificent parade attire; talented riders perform trick riding, precision drills, and amazing roping tricks. Get up close and take pictures. Talk to the riders. Visit the stables and learn about the different breeds of horses. Also, enjoy the displays, vendors, music and the food court.


Hear the beautiful music of the marching bands during Bandfest. You will quickly see why these outstanding bands were chosen to participate in the 2017 Tournament of Roses Parade.



At the Showcase of Floats, you can stand within feet of the floats and see the meticulous workmanship that went into each one. You can ask questions from the Tournament volunteers located at each float.



If this legendary parade down Colorado Boulevard is on your bucket list, join Escapees for the 128th Tournament of Roses, where this year’s theme is “Echoes of Success.” It is celebrating those who have been instrumental in helping others achieve their success.



The Rose Parade is a unique experience and sharing it with the HOP and fellow Escapees makes it even more special. Come and join us! Make some amazing friends and lifetime memories at the most-watched parade in the world!
