Pasadena Tournament of Roses Announces Bands Marching in 2022 Rose Parade Applications now available for 2023
The Pasadena Tournament of Roses® is pleased to announce the 20 bands that will march in the Rose Parade® on January 1, 2022. The 2022 parade will feature participants originally slated for the 2021 parade. Bands have kicked off their fundraising activities and continue to receive community support for their trip to the 133rd Rose Parade presented by Honda, themed “Dream. Believe. Achieve.”
The bands will travel to Pasadena from across the United States and around the world, including Italy, Japan, Panama and Sweden. Thousands of performers will enjoy the experience of a lifetime when they march down Colorado Blvd. on New Year’s Day, each with their own unique story.
