Those who come to Pasadena to enjoy the 133rd Rose Parade, they will be able to enjoy the show live, unlike in previous years, because Saturday will be the first time the parade has been held during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With LeVar Burton As grand marshal, the 2022 Rose Parade will take place on January 1 on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET.

However, the list of items and activities that are and are not allowed will remain largely the same.

The most common question, according to the Pasadena fire marshal, Chad Augustin, It comes from those who have been camping since the day before to get good positions to see the parade.


They are allowed to settle in at noon on Friday, and are advised that there are nighttime lows that hit 40 F and with that comes the temptation to warm up with bonfires.

“And the answer is no,” Augustin said. “You can have an approved commercial barbecue or an approved commercial appliance. It has to be at least one foot from the ground, we ask that it be 25 feet from a structure and it must have a fire extinguisher in case it is necessary ”.

Fireworks will not be allowed either. The Rose Parade route and the Rose Bowl are subject to temporary flight restrictions, so drones are not allowed.

And as for the parade route… “At 10 pm, it will be closed to all vehicle traffic, except for several emergency routes that cross the parade route. Vehicles in general will not be allowed to pass through the parade route, ”said Lieutenant Bill grisafe from the Pasadena Police Department. “At 7 in the morning, the route will be completely closed. People will not be able to cross the parade route ”.

And on Saturday, the day of the parade, officials want people to have fun, responsibly. “No alcoholic beverages of any kind are allowed on the parade route,” Grisafe said.

Authorities advise spectators to bring hot liquids that do not contain alcohol, are well supplied with food, and dress in layers.



The masks and covid vaccine tests will be required in ticketed areas.
