Rose Parade 2023: Everything you need to know before heading to Pasadena’s popular annual event

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC)– The flower floats are painted and people build anticipation for the 134th Rose Parade – Pasadena’s popular annual event.

The parade is scheduled for 8 a.m. Monday, January 2, 2023, before the Rose Bowl game that pits the Utah Utes against the Penn State Nittany Lions. Parade officials said they expect about 700,000 guests this year.

Before you start making plans, here’s everything you need to know:


You can buy reserved grandstand seats for the parade through Sharp Seating Company. Each person must have a ticket to sit in the reserved grandstands. The only exception are children under the age of two who have the opportunity to sit on an adult’s lap, otherwise they also need a ticket.

road closures

The Pasadena Police Department will close the Rose Parade route to motorists early.

Route closures begin January 1 at 10:00 p.m. through January 2 at 2:00 p.m. along Colorado Boulevard from Orange Grove Boulevard to Sierra Madre Boulevard and northbound on Sierra Madre to Paloma Street.

Early campers

Campers are allowed to line up at 12pm the day before the parade. As temperatures are expected to drop overnight, officials are asking people to dress warmly.

The Pasadena Fire Department reported receiving twice as many calls for medical issues, such as hypothermia, on parade day than on a normal day.


As LA County health officials continue to monitor the number of COVID-19 cases, the city of Pasadena, which has its own health department that usually aligns with the county, said masks are strongly recommended indoors.

“We normally agree with the county but once we look at our numbers and compare to the county we will have this conversation internally as to next steps, that may change next week but as of today it is highly recommended to stay inside. said Lisa Derderian, public affairs officer in Pasadena.
