The 5.5-mile parade route takes about 2.5 hours to complete. The Tournament of Roses Parade has followed the same route — mainly following Colorado Boulevard (Pasadena’s main thoroughfare and a segment of the former US 66) — for many decades. The day before the parade, the entire neighborhood of streets south of the intersection of Orange Grove and Colorado Blvds. are sealed off and reserved for the marshaling and staging of the dozens of floats, bands, equestrian units, and other elements. This staging area is referred to as the “Formation Area” and is managed by the Formation Area Committee.

On parade morning the various elements are merged and dispatched in front of Tournament House. The parade starts headed north on South Orange Grove Boulevard beginning at Ellis Street.

The main grandstands, including the main television and media stands, begin at the beginning of the trek on Colorado Boulevard.

There is a post-parade viewing area on Washington Boulevard and E Sierra Madre Boulevard near Pasadena High School.

Floats
Most floats are built by professional float building-companies, and take nearly a year to construct. Some communities and organizational sponsors still rely on volunteers. Floats still use real, fresh flowers. The cost of flowers is included in the total cost of the float and paid for by the float sponsor.
