Coming up tomorrow morning, it will be time for an annual tradition: The Rose Parade! It’s a fun opportunity to see a number of beautiful floats; not only that, but it kicks off the new year with something festive and fun that isn’t college football … even if it is effectively a giant pre-game show for it.
Do you want to watch the parade this year? Well, the first thing that you should know about it is that it’s going to start on NBC at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time / 8:30 a.m. Pacific time. This is one of those events that is actually airing live from coast to coast, mostly because there are so many other events happening throughout the day there’s no real chance to scale it outward. The parade is happening from Pasadena as always, and it’s always such an interesting contrast from New York City and the festivities that happen there the night prior. In New York, it’s cold and extremely rainy tonight; tomorrow, there’s a good chance for some California sunshine … though it is also going to be unseasonably cold.
Want to live stream the Rose Parade? Then you can do that over at the link here. That will bring you to the official KTLA stream of the festivities, and that’s something to check out tomorrow in the event that you do want to check out some other fun coverage of the event — consider it a different viewpoint.
Personally, for us the NBC telecast is our favorite just because they are, for the most part, polished and you get at least some good views for a number of the different floats. There are also a few celebrities who have a tendency to stop by in some shape or form. This time around, the Grand Marshall for the parade is none other than the iconic Chaka Khan, someone who will likely bring a lively spirit and plenty of energy to the show. She’s certainly deserving of the honor and we can’t wait to see precisely what she ends up bringing to the table amidst all of the various festivities on the holiday.
Happy New Year, everyone! We’re excited to cover both the Rose Parade and a number of other notable events taking place throughout the day.
