Bob Eubanks first Rose Parade was in 1978. Stephanie Edwards first Rose Parade was in 1982. During the rest of the year, Stephanie is working on writing a book. Bob speaks all year round and is working on a 50th Anniversary Special for the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in 2014.
The 124th Rose Parade presented by Honda, themed "Oh the Places You'll Go!"... will feature spirited marching bands from throughout the nation, majestic floral floats, and high-stepping equestrian units.
The theme "Oh the Places You'll Go!" is from the Dr. Seuss book of the same name, encouraging people to be their best selves, make the best of life's inevitable challenges and dream big dreams to find success and happiness!
Dr. Jane Goodall, the Grand Marshal - was chosen for her commitment to youth. She, of course, has also been an advocate to the primate world for more than three decades.
There will be 24 bands, 41 floats, 21 equestrians.
