About:

Rosebud Parade gives people of all ages and from all over the world, an opportunity to come together, albeit virtually, to share in a joyous event … much like we do each New Year’s Day.

  • Over 200 float entries from across the US and two international submissions; Panama and Mexico – both are bands selected to march in the 2021 Rose Parade.
  • All ages – from a 3-year-old to grandparents.
  • Most floats are creative collaborations from the whole family.
  • Entries came in all shapes and sizes – some floats are the size of shoe-boxes and some were actually constructed on wagons and one on a plastic kiddy pool.
  • These homemade entries aren’t just creative and fun; they’re beautiful, powerful and heartfelt symbols of what the Rose Parade is meant to be.
