Happy New Year! We’re ringing in 2021 with a Rose Parade celebration, but it will be a little different this year. Nonetheless, you can still enjoy a Southern California tradition and watch the show on KTLA Channel 5 and ktla.com.
The Tournament of Roses has created a pre-produced special, “The Rose Parade’s New Year Celebration presented by Honda.” The two-hour show will air on KTLA and ktla.com at 8 a.m.
KTLA will also stream an encore presentation of 2020’s Band Cam on the station’s Facebook page and YouTube account. That stream is a raw feed of the parade’s marching bands from last year.
Coverage of previous years’ presentations of the Rose Parade will continue throughout the day. Then, the 2021 special will air for a second time at 8 p.m. on KTLA.
The Tournament announced in July that with “reluctance and tremendous disappointment” it would be unable to host the 2021 Rose Parade, which would have been the 132nd. COVID-19 restrictions in California made unfeasible an event that draws hundreds of thousands to the streets of Pasadena every year.
The floats and bands that were scheduled to appear this New Year’s Day have been invited back for the 2022 parade, the Tournament of Roses said.
According to the tournament, the two-hour special on Jan. 1, 2021, will include “marching band performances, heartwarming segments related to the Rose Parade, special Rose Bowl Game® football highlights, equestrians, spectacular floats from years past, a behind-the-scenes look into the making of a float and New Year’s wishes from fans around the world.”
The following performers will appear, the tournament has announced:
