Rose Bowl Parade 001

Sometime around 7 a.m. Pacific Time on New Year's Day, floats were getting into position in Pasadena as Penn State fans among approximately 1 million spectators along the route of the 120th Rose Parade. The annual parade, 25 years older than the football bowl game, was started by horse-riding members of the local hunting club who decorated their horses and photographed them for relatives and friends in colder parts of the country to show off the beautifully mild winter weather in southern California.
