The Pasadena Tournament of Roses announces the Mid-Parade Performance presented by the Louisiana Office of Tourism. The midpoint highlight of the 2022 Rose Parade® presented by Honda fulfills Louisiana’s promise to feed your soul with an unforgettable rendition of Born on the Bayou, featuring Laine Hardy, season 17 winner of American Idol, and the Hot 8 Brass Band – the New Orleans-based group that blends hip-hop, jazz and funk styles with traditional New Orleans brass sounds.

With this year’s float and mid-parade performance, Louisiana invites the world to come to Louisiana and experience all it has to offer. But Louisiana isn’t for spectators. It’s for participants—those who want to not only live the moment, but also to become the moment.

Celebrating the diverse beauty and unique cultures of Louisiana, this gorgeous float features the iconic wrought-iron balconies, lamp posts and moss-draped cypress swamps that make Louisiana beautiful, as well as the music and zest for life of the people of this great state.
