Hosted by Pam Minick and Orion Samuelson – take a behind-the-scenes tour of the floats, marching bands, and myriad other special attractions as they all get ready to take their places in the spectacle that is the Tournament of Roses Parade, held annually in Pasadena, California.

The 128th Annual Tournament of Roses Parade
11 AM ET | 10 AM CT | 9 AM MT | 8 AM PT

Welcome the new year with the spectacle and splendor of the Rose Parade! RFD-TV will air the parade on Monday, January 2, 2017 starting at 11:00 AM.  Watch the incredible floats, bands and more as they make their way through sunny Pasadena, California. 

The parade will run on a Monday due to the “Never on Sunday” tradition which began in 1893. At that time, the tournament wanted to avoid frightening horses hitched outside area churches, so they moved the festivities to the next day, January 2.

The 2017 Tournament of Roses parade theme is “Echoes of Success” and focuses on how character is developed through selfless contributions and inspirational gifts. Former Olympic greats and Southern California natives Janet Evans, Allyson Felix and Greg Louganis will serve as Grand Marshalls.

Evans is a five-time Olympic medalist who has broken seven world records in long distance swimming. Felix is the most decorated female track and field Olympian in history with six gold medals from the 2012 and 2016 Olympics games.  Diver Louganis has a total of five Olympic medals, five World Championship titles and 47 national titles - more than any person in U.S. history. All three athletes serve on the LA 2024 Athletes' Advisory Commission in hopes the city will secure the 2024 games.

RFD-TV will kick-off our coverage with the 2017 Rose Parade Pre-Show at 10:30 AM ET on January 2.
