(CNS) Pasadena police want fans going to today's Rose Bowl to be respectful to each other and to the residents of homes near the stadium. "We do want people who plan to attend the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game to have a good time,'' Pasadena Police Department Deputy Chief Darryl Qualls told City News Service. "... We ask everyone to be respectful of each other. "If you are going to have a gathering at your home or in your RV, be mindful of your neighbors and others who may be camping around you.''
The quest for a problem-free time for fans includes a set of tailgating guidelines instituted by stadium officials following the UCLA-USC football game in 2010, when two people were stabbed in a fight outside the stadium before the game.
Fans are asked not to carry glass containers and to avoid drinking games, beer bongs and other stunts aimed at getting drunk fast. The use of plastic or paper cups is recommended. Alcohol will not be allowed in parking lots after kickoff.
The following items cannot be taken into the Rose Bowl:
Personal cameras are permitted. Strollers should be checked with an usher at stadium tunnels.
