Pasadena Welcomes You To The Rose Bowl, But Please Mind Your Manners

Posted: Updated:
Pasadena, CA -

(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.  

The guidelines:

  • Tailgating must be restricted to the front or rear of vehicles
  • Tents larger than 10-by-10 feet must not be in front or behind vehicles
  • Open flames are prohibited in tailgating or parking areas; and
    Charcoal-fired grills are prohibited in the recreational vehicle parking area.

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:

  • noisemakers, including thunder sticks, musical instruments, whistles,
  • air horns and boom boxes
  • weapons or projectiles
  • alcoholic beverages
  • glass, metal or hard plastic containers of any size
  • hard- or soft-sided coolers of any size
  • plastic drink containers, although containers that are two liters or
  • less with factory seals intact are exempt
  • backpacks, bags and purses larger than 14 inches by 14 inches;
  • boxes or wrapped packages of any size
  • un-sliced fruits or vegetables
  • animals, other than service animals required because of a disability
  • balls, toys or sports equipment
  • banners, signs or flags
  • helium balloons
  • laser pointers
  • poles or sticks
  • unauthorized video cameras, monopods or tripods.

Personal cameras are permitted. Strollers should be checked with an usher at stadium tunnels.
