Every year the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California puts on the best show. Entitled the Tournament of Roses, this amazing parade is all about flowers and in particular about roses. We always wanted to go to the Rose Parade, but with two small children coming out in the very early hours of the morning just to get a somewhat decent seat, is out of the question. So, we opted to come see the floats in what is called the Post Parade event where you come admire the floats that have been parked on a couple of wide streets. Is it really worth it? Well, read on to find out.
I call this the “Pajama Parade” because parade participants come dressed in their everyday clothes even their pajamas sometimes. Even though it has improved over the years, this is not the “Rose Parade” with fancy floats and carefully selected marching bands. The Camarillo Christmas Parade is a parade for the community; it’s a great feeling to see people you know walking in the parade.
