2006 Rose Parade

Today we got up early to drive up to Pasadena and watch the Tournament of Roses Parade live and in person — despite the expected torrential rainstorms (the first time, apparently, it’s rained on a Rose Parade in 50 years).

Cheryl and Ken met us at our hotel room and led us to one of Ken’s favorite spots to watch the parade near the end of the route. We covered as much of ourselves as we could in plastic, walked two blocks up to the parade route, and easily found front-row spaces on the sidewalk.

Everyone agreed that it was well worth braving the storms — and becoming completely soaked to the skin despite the ponchos — to see the Rose Parade and its fabulous floats and great, world-class marching bands (all of whom held up very well in the constant rain) up close and live.
