Announcing a new Meetup for Photographers and Digital Artists of Los Angeles!
What: Tournament of Roses Parade Float Showcase
When: January 2,[masked]:30 AM
Pasadena City College
1570 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91106
For those not quite brave enough to try to attend the actual Tournament of Roses parade itself, take heart: There's still a fantastic opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the floats at the "Post Parade Showcase of Floats" in Sierra Madre! Be sure to bring a long lens to capture the beauty and amazing detail of these works of art - the floats are required, by the rules, to be completely covered in natural materials like flowers, seeds and bark.
We'll meet at the main entrance to the viewing area on Washington Blvd. at Woodlyn Road. I wouldn't recommend trying to park right in that neighborhood, though - Use one of the several Park & Ride lots around Pasadena, where you can take a shuttle for just $3 (round trip) and purchase your admission to the viewing are (only $7.) We'll probably stop for lunch at the food court inside the viewing area.
For those that live near the Metro Gold Line, The MTA offers shuttle service from the Sierra Madre Villa Gold Line Station to the Post Parade Park. You can get more details about the event and the locations of the Park & Ride lots at http://www.tournamentofroses.com/events/showcase.asp
See you there!
