In addition to riding in the 5 1/2 mile-long Rose Parade route on New Year’s Day, these equestrian groups are invited to take part in Equestfest presented by Wells Fargo, which will take place Dec. 29, 2015, at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. During Equestfest, groups perform trick riding, drills, dancing and roping skills, and attendees can walk through the stables and speak with the riders.

The Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade®, the Rose Bowl Game® and a variety of associated events. Nine hundred thirty-five volunteer members act as ambassadors of the organization and contribute upwards of 80,000 hours of manpower each year. The 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda themed “Find Your Adventure,” will take place Friday, Jan. 1, 2016, followed by the 102nd Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual.
