PASADENA Cal., (WPMI) —
Did you know that it takes over 20 million flowers, 5,000 gallons of glue, 600 tons of steel and over 200,000 combined volunteer hours to pull off the Tournament of Roses Parade every year? Or that the parade is viewed by more than 60 million people in the U.S. and is broadcast worldwide to 220 countries? Or that it takes nearly a year to complete each float?
The Rose Parade is a celebration that happens in Pasadena, California every year. It’s more than a century old and happens in conjunction with the Rose Bowl Game.
