Rose Bowl Parade 2012

On Monday, January 2nd, my good friend Renee took me to the Rose Bowl Parade with her. Here's a few pictures from the day:

We left at 6am and sat in traffic for an hour. Fortunately the sunrise was beautiful:

The fly-over:

The beginning of the parade:

Everyone gets to walk through this:

This was one of my favorites:

America, baby:

Marching band prancing:

Go Go Power Rangers!


This guy blew smoke from his nose:

This beautiful float held the record for the largest float, but the surf wasn't "up" quite yet:

These girls were so adorable:

Can pigs fly?

Love these dinos:

Kaiser Permanente's float:

All the horses were awesome:

The end of the parade was lead by police leading the occupy movement:
It was pretty chaotic:

 We walked back to our car along with the Occupiers:

After sitting in our car for 30 minutes in the parking lot, waiting to move, we just decided to park and walk around Old Town Pasadena. There was traffic and trash everywhere! It sort of looked like a post-apocalyptic scene: 

Well, I hope everyone had a great New Years, and here's looking forward to 2012 ~!~!
