The Tournament of Roses is back. After the coronavirus canceled last year’s festivities, the 133rd Rose Parade will march down Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022.
LeVar Burton is the grand marshal of the floral float-filled festivities, which will air live starting at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET on local ABC, NBC, KTLA-5, RFD TV and Univision channels, and will precede the 108th Rose Bowl game, which is presented by Capital One Venture X.
The 2022 theme is “Dream. Believe. Achieve,” and spectators (including those tuning in) can expect to see floats from TV shows such as ABC’s The Bachelor and Fox’s The Masked Singer as well as from brands, corporations and nonprofits including the AIDS Health Foundation, AMC Theatres, China Airlines, City of Hope, Louisiana Office of Tourism, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Reese’s and Trader Joe’s. Southern California cities such as Burbank, South Pasadena and Torrance will also roll through with botanical-covered creations.
The 2022 Roses Queen is Los Angeles senior high school student Nadia Chung, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times‘ High School Insider division whose résumé also includes experience as an intern at Outlook Newsgroup, company member of the California Contemporary Youth Ballet, Beyond Resolved coordinator for accessibility in debate education, president of her school’s mock trial team and 2020 Miss La Cañada-Flintridge Royal Court, among other titles.
For the first time in the Rose Parade’s history, 270 of the top band directors across the U.S. and Mexico will together march as a band with the Michael D. Sewell Memorial Foundation Float. LeaAnn Rimes will kick off the festivities with a special performance of her song, “Throw My Arms Around the World.” Laine Hardy and the Hot 8 Brass Band will perform the mid-parade show, and the grand finale performance will feature country music artist Jimmie Allen.
The parade will also feature classic vehicles, equestrians and marching bands; see the full lineup here.
