The theme of the 2011 Tournament of Roses Rose Parade, "Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories", comes after the 2010 "Cut Above" theme. The parade began as a way to showcase the perfect California weather. The fun has lasted through 2 world wars, depression, and has survived any one person. It is the oldest, biggest flower-float parade anywhere on earth!
The Rose Parade is one of the watched events, broadcast on TV around the world. 2011 promises no rain throughout the day (January 1) in Southern California, though some could at night. Enjoy!
