The Rose Parade HOP

Pasadena Tournament of Roses

December 27, 2017 – January 3, 2018

Hosts: James and Lisa Sudbury



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; see and smell all the vibrant flowers, and the cocoa and coffee beans; learn how the floats are created.


In VIP setting, relax and enjoy Equestfest. See the beautiful horses outfitted in stunning parade attire. Watch talented riders perform trick riding, precision drills and amazing rope tricks. Visit the stables and learn about the different breeds of horses. Get up close. Talk with the riders and take pictures; enjoy the vendors, the music and the food court.


Listen to the beautiful music of the marching bands during Bandfest. You will quickly see why these outstanding bands were chosen to participate in the 2018 Tournament of Roses Parade.



At the Showcase of Floats, you can walk within a few feet of all the floats and see the meticulous workmanship that went into each one. You can ask questions of the Tournament volunteers located near each float.


Escapees has a fun-filled time lined up for you, so expect to have a wonderful time. The Rose Parade is such a unique experience, and sharing it with fellow Escapees makes it even more special. Come with us, meet amazing friends, and take away new lifetime memories at the most-watched parade in the world!
