Rose Parade

January 1, 2021 | 8:00 am

The 131st Rose Parade is set to kick off another new year with spirited marching bands from across the nation, majestic floral floats, and high-stepping horses. Conveniently located near the parade’s path, Comfort Inn Pasadena sells out fast during this event, so we recommend booking your reservations early. The parade will be broadcast in over 200 international territories and countries on ABC, Hallmark Channel, ESPN, KTLA5, NBC, RFD-TV, but there’s nothing like seeing it in person!

Rose Bowl

January 1, 2021

Continuing the tradition at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium this new year, the Rose Bowl Game will follow the fun of the Rose Parade with an exciting match-up between two of the top teams in the nation. The Comfort Inn near Old Town Pasadena in Eagle Rock, California is a popular hotel during the Rose Bowl, so be sure to make your reservations early to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event, broadcast exclusively on ESPN and ESPN radio.
