The Tournament of Roses Parade is best known as the Rose Parade and is held to celebrate the beginning of the American New Year. The inauguration of this parade was held on the first of January in the year 1890 and was witnessed by thousands of spectators, both on the television and on its route. The Rose Parade is broadcasted on numerous television channels, though the official television rights are held by the ABC channel but since it is a public event, every channel is allowed to film and run their own coverage. According to television viewership ratings, this parade can be viewed in over two hundred international territories. The Rose Bowl football game was added to this parade in the year 1902 to increase the amount of funds generated by the event. As of 2011, the official sponsor for the Tournament of Roses Parade is the Japanese motor company; Honda. The sponsor is given the honor of having the very first float of the parade, so that they can advertise its name and brand.
The parade was originally established when a few of the members of the Valley Hunt Club of Pasadena got together to present a public parade on the Day of Independence. This tradition picked up pace almost immediately and annual parades were seen in Pasadena. In the year 1893, a "No Sunday Parade" rule was added, which simply said that no parade would be held on a Sunday. This was done so as to not interfere with the Church processions happening around the area. Furthermore, no Rose Bowl game is held on a Sunday as well since the organizers do not want to compete with the National Football League's games occurring on that day, as it would greatly decrease the Rose Bowl's viewership.

The parade then turns towards the Sierra Madre Boulevard which is towards the southern side and finally travels up to the Paloma Street located next to the Victory Park. It then finally stops in front of the Pasadena High School. A day before the parade has to be held; all of these streets are emptied and sealed off to reserve them for the floats, the marching bands and equestrian units. The entire vicinity that is prepared for the parade is called the "Formation Area".
