Rose BowlSince 1890 the Tournament of Roses has put together a festival on January 1 hosted at the Rose Bowl Stadium, but it’s not the only celebration that happens at this Los Angeles landmark. Over the years, the Rose Bowl Stadium has hosted numerous primetime events and celebrations – from the annual Rose Bowl Game to hosting the 1932 Summer Olympics cycling racings. The iconic stadium has been home to some of the most riveting football games in college history - particularly once it became the first college football game to be broadcast nationally in color. Over the years the stadium has expanded, fans have come and gone, attendance has dipped and increased - but throughout it all, the Rose Bowl Stadium has stood proud.
Los Angeles might have a handful of venues to entertain oneself over the year, but the Rose Bowl Stadium is synonymous with enthusiasm, dedication, hard work and perseverance. As the current home to the UCLA Bruins, the Rose Bowl Stadium now welcomes a host of college football fans weekly. Fans also return to Rose Bowl Stadium monthly for the Rose Bowl Flea Market, where local vendors showcase their goods in a colorful marketplace that features high and low-end items. The famous Rose Bowl Stadium is the final landmark of the Tournament of Roses, where every year on January 1st a parade through Pasadena bands together local musicians, artists, performers and, of course, football fans, for the Rose Bowl Game hosted at the Rose Bowl Stadium. Initially a tournament that showed off the strength of local men, the Rose Bowl Game is now one of the biggest collegiate sports events in the nation.
