My favorite way to celebrate New Year's Eve is to watch the floats line up on Orange Grove Blvd about 10 p.m. The entire city of Pasadena comes out to see the floats up close, smell the flowers, and usher in the new year! Plus, it's free!
January 1, 2014 open the new year with the Rose Parade featuring this year's Grand Marshall, the LA icon, Vin Scully! Follow up with the Rose Bowl game, teams as yet undetermined.
