By the way, on New Year's Day it was crystal-clear, sunny and in the upper 70s. Perfect TV weather.

Today, Jan. 2, in Pasadena, it's foggy and in the low 50s. ;-)

Once again, thanks Robert…

Not too many responses, but every year I watch this Parade.. This year I had my wife and daughter watched it with me and they both enjoyed it…

Pasadena looks nice, might be a nice place to retire to…Someday…

Thanks for the best pictures I have been able to find on the parade! I missed seeing it, as I was sick; so your pictoral and video fill in was nice to come across.

Also, I appreciated your featuring a band. It's so nice to actually hear the music instead of the yappy broadcasters talking over all of them!

Again, thanks and Happy 2009!

Although we had 4 floats in our barn I think I like the Jack o licious best. The dancers were great and I loved the outfits and energy. I met Raul Rodriguez and petted his parrot. I met the jack on the float and my daughter and her oldest child were there all night on the 30th.This is my third year volunteering at Festival Artists World Wide and I love it. I turned 62 on 12/11 and it makes me happy to bring these floats to millions as the most fantastic examples of unity. Thousand of people help with this venture. I glued my coat to my arm during the night and everyone had a laugh. May everyone enjoy a blessed new year and watch next years rose parade.
