  • The 123rd Tournament of Rosse Parade in Pasadena is setting social streams on fire this morning, and with good reason. With an expected crowd of more than 150,000 people, the theme of this year's festivities is "Just Imagine. The parade kicked off at 8:00AM PST/11:00AM EST, and is being following by the big college football game. This year the Wisconsin Badgers and the Oregon Ducks are facing off. You can catch a livestream of the parade on

  • Suffice to say, the event is nostalgic for many.
  • There may be a new tradition started during this year's parade. For the past week, Occupy LA and Occupy Pittsburgh protesters have been preparing a Rose Parade float to project what they see as corporate America’s corrupt power on the political system.

  • It will be interesting to see how the Occupy float is received by the masses.
