2011 Pasadena Rose Parade

21 Jan

We camped out at the Rose Parade this year, which I’ve been wanting to do for several years now. Besides the floats, and the music, and ringing in the new year on Colorado Blvd – the best part is always the camping. When else do I get to sleep out on the street with the crazies, eating snacks and freezing my butt off? Plus, I love trying to sleep through kids (and adults) throwing shaving cream, tortillas, and silly string at cars and in cars and in passengers’ faces…

IT’S FUN, I SWEAR.

This year’s theme was Building Dreams, Friendships, and Memories.

Wow.

Anyone else feel that that was an all-encompassing stab at Horrible? Did you see those float designs? What in the world. So some of my photos below are a glimpse of my favorite bits and pieces from the parade. Proof that photography can give better memories than the actual experience.

And yes, we are doing it next year.
