The Tournament of Roses is back. After the coronavirus canceled last year’s festivities, the 133rd Rose Parade will march down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
LeVar Burton is the grand marshal of the float-filled floral festivities, which will air live beginning at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET on local channels ABC, NBC, KTLA-5, RFD TV and Univision, and will precede the 108th Rose Bowl game, which is presented by Capital One Venture X.
The theme for 2022 is “Dream. Believe. Realize,” and viewers (including those listening) can expect to see floats from TV shows such as ABC The single person and the fox The Masked Singer as well as brands, companies, and nonprofits, including the AIDS Health Foundation, AMC Theaters, 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 feature plant-covered creations.
The Queen of Roses 2022 is Nadia Chung, a high school student from Los Angeles, a journalist for the Los Angeles Times‘ The High School Insider division whose resume 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 the school’s mock trial team and 2020 Miss La Cañada-Flintridge Royal Court, among other titles.
For the first time in the history of the Rose Parade, 270 top band executives from across the United States and Mexico will parade together as a band with the Michael D. Sewell Memorial Foundation Float. LeaAnn Rimes will kick off the festivities with a special rendition of her song, “Throw My Arms Around the World.” Laine Hardy and the Hot 8 Brass Band will present the mid-parade show, and the grand finale performance will feature country music artist Jimmie Allen.
The parade will also feature classic vehicles, riders and marching bands; see the full program here.
