Are You Ready for the Rose Bowl?


Are you ready to Rose? The 129th annual Rose Bowl Tournament takes place January 1 at the iconic Los Angeles Rose Bowl Stadium. Book your room now, because this landmark event sells out rooms across Los Angeles. The festivities begin at 8 a.m. with floral floats and marching bands alongside equestrian units. The 5.5 mile route down Colorado Boulevard must be experienced in person as you get to join thousands to welcome the New Year in the streets of Pasadena.

Tickets are still available for the grandstand, but you’ll want to call immediately. Sharp Seating Company can be reached at 626-795-4171 for all your booking needs. The famous parade starts at Green Street and Orange Grove in nearby Pasadena, but public transportation, taxis, or ride sharing is encouraged. There is some reserved parking available when you book your grandstand tickets.

The Game of a Lifetime

The biggest college playoff game kicks off at 1 p.m., giving you plenty of time to reach the stadium—or your favorite sports bar to watch with fellow fans. The gates open at noon, when Oklahoma takes over the west sideline and Georgia heads to the east. No matter who you’re rooting for, you can bet on an experience of a lifetime.

Prefer to watch the game from the comfort of a local pub? Ask the front desk at your LA hotel for recommendations. Tickets are sold at many popular bars and pubs around town. Don’t wait—you’ll want to book your rooms now to stay conveniently close to all the Rose Bowl activities.
