News!! For those that are planning on going to the 124th annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena on jan 1 2013(so lucky I work in front of it so I see it every year.) "Disney formally announced its plans this past week to enter a Cars Land-inspired float in the 124th annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. The Cars Land float will feature a bouncing tire from Luigi's Flying Tires, a bubbling "Original Radiator Spring," a real waterfall, baby tractors (complete with puffing smoke), a re-creation of Ornament Valley, the Cozy Cones, and Cars characters Lighting McQueen, Salley, Luigi and Guido in floral representations.
Sooo awesome!!! I can't wait!!! This is a family tradition of ours that spans 4 generations and over 70 years!!! We have had the same spot the whole time. You don't mess with my family and our "spot" or else! We get to start marking it in a couple of weeks and my aunt goes a few times a week until the parade to make sure it's still ours!!! Starting 2 days before the parade, we are allowed to guard our spot without having to leave. We all rotate 8 hour shifts. It's quite the process but sooo worth it!!! I'll be sure to post pics of this float!!! - caramiapoohAKAface   3092.8 #32 10-29-12 9:11PM Like(8)  Reply

We are just after the last overpass of the 210 at Sierra Madre. We are about a mile or so from the end. Every year we hold up a sign that says "You're Half Way There" 😁😁😁 The looks on the poor marching band kids faces are priceless!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 10-29-12 9:32PM
im at the corner at the end on sierra madre and colorado i work at the comfort inn in the corner how cool haha ill keep an eye out for you and omg haha i know the marching band feels bad when they see your sign haha are you guys usually in the front? its usually empty on sierra madre and colorado. - Hendizl  2501.7 #42 10-29-12 9:36PM
We are right before the handicap section. We have about 6 rows of chairs, around 120 seats! Our group has gotten so big that we have a seating chart now!! I'm always in the front row bc I totally interact with everyone walking by! I'm CRAZY at the parade!!! I love it!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 10-29-12 9:41PM
I will have to come find you the day before when I have my shift!!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 10-29-12 9:42PM
haha ill be in the streets everyone that stays at my hotel is there for the parade so i am basically off all day since everyone is out watching the parade. seeing it in person is really a different experience then on tv the only thing is the floats do look smaller in person then they do on tv my opinion. do you ever go to the park were they have the floats so you can take pictures ? its up sierra madre i believe? - Hendizl  2501.7 #42 10-29-12 9:45PM
You mean afterwards? No, I'm usually too tired and just want to take a nap!!! My fam has gone though. They have helped on some of the floats as well :) - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 10-29-12 9:48PM
WOW CARA! I live at Sierra madre and orange grove, im one block from the end of the parade route. We have our spot in front of the last parking lot/ rv lot north of assumption church. - ninodj  198.2 #1891 10-29-12 9:50PM
I'm sure I've driven or walked by you many times!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 10-29-12 10:46PM
The same here. We always drive down the parade route early on New Year's Eve - ninodj  198.2 #1891 10-30-12 6:21AM

I live about 3 hrs away and have never been able to go and see it all live. Hopefully one day I will. Does anyone know how the seating for this parade works? Is it free? First come first serve? How soon should you show up to serve a spot? Thank you! :) - notw12   164.6 #2357 10-30-12 10:57AM Like  Reply
...to reserve a spot. Sorry! - notw12  164.6 #2357 10-30-12 10:58AM
YEs it's free. Except the bleachers seating. It's first come first serve. Day gets crazy so people are there couple days or weeks before reserving spot.^^ check out the first comment there's allot of more info good luck. Don't try booking rooms that day they are crazy expensive. Unless its far from the parade. You can show up the night before and you should be fine really is a good experience - Hendizl  2501.7 #42 10-30-12 11:31AM
If you want a good spot, you have to start marking your spot in the next couple of weeks and continue to mark it several times a week until Jan 1st. There are A LOT of rules of what you can and cannot do to save your spot! Some people show up the day before and try for a spot, but its slim pickens and you have to sleep out over night to save it! You can always try and show up the morning of but you won't get a close up spot. You can try for the bleacher seats, but they cost $$!! Good luck!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3092.8 #32 11-1-12 7:47PM
