More Than 1,000 Estimated to Participate in the Annual Rose Queen® & Royal Court Tryouts
WHAT: In less than one week, more than 1,000 Pasadena-area young women will be one step closer to becoming the 2013 Rose Queen® as they participate in the Rose Queen & Royal Court Tryouts. This is a wonderful opportunity for young women who live in Pasadena and the communities surrounding it to represent not only their community, but also their school and the Tournament of Roses®. After a month-long selection process, seven finalists will be named to the 2013 Royal Court.
As ambassadors of the Tournament of Roses and the city of Pasadena, the 2013 Rose Queen & Royal Court will reign over the 124th Rose Parade® presented by Honda and the 99th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO on January 1, 2013 themed "Oh, the Places You'll Go!™". The New Year celebration will be seen by millions of people around the world. The following schedule details the selection process from initial tryouts to the Coronation.
