LIVE STREAM: 2016 Rose Bowl Parade!
The 2016 Rose Bowl Parade, also known as the Tournament of Roses Parade, is on Friday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream below.
This marks the 127th year of the annual New Year’s Day parade, which takes place in Pasadena California. The theme of this year’s parade is “Find Your Adventure.” And, as usual, making their way down along the 5.5 mile procession that takes approximately two hours will be 44 floats, 20 marching band and 19 teams of horses. Of course, the floats, with their different themes, are festooned with flowers. Ken Burns serves as this year’s Grand Marshall.
Ben Higgins, who stars as “The Bachelor,” beginning on Monday, will be on one of the floats. This, too, seems to have become a tradition. Last year, Chris Soules rode on a float with past “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” winners and host Chris Harrison. The tie-in, of course, is that the “Bachelor” hands out roses.
Hours after the Rose Bowl Parade will be the actual Rose Bowl in which the Stanford Cardinal will take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Stanford University and University of Iowa’s respective bands will be among those marching in the parade before the big game. NOTE: The 2016 Rose Bowl Parade live stream is no longer available.
