Rose Parade HOP – Pasadena Tournament of Roses

December 27, 2021 - January 3, 2022

Location: Pasadena, California

Come with us and experience the behind-the-scenes magic of the legendary Pasadena 132nd Tournament of Roses Parade, where this year’s theme is “Dream, Believe, Achieve; celebrating education’s ability to open doors, opens mins and change lives.” 

The parade travels 5 ½ miles down Colorado Blvd and features four types of entries: equestrian units, bands, non-profit organizations, and the floral-decorated floats entered by participating corporations.

Come and see how these beautiful, award-winning floats are created and even help decorate them!

Enjoy the vibrant extravagance of the aromatic flowers and the rich smell of cocoa and coffee beans.

In VIP setting, relax and enjoy Equestfest. See the beautiful horses outfitted in stunning parade attire. Watch talented riders perform trick-riding, precision drills and amazing rope tricks.

Visit the stables and learn about the different breeds of horses. Get up close. Talk with the riders and take pictures; enjoy the vendors, the music, and the food court!

Listen to the beautiful music of the marching bands during Bandfest, and you will quickly see why these outstanding bands have been chosen to participate in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade.

At the Showcase of Floats, you can walk within a few feet of all the floats and see the meticulous workmanship that went into each one. You can ask questions of the Tournament volunteers located near each float.

Escapees has a wonderful time lined up for you, so expect to have a fun-filled week! The Rose Parade is such a unique experience and sharing it with fellow Escapees makes it even more special. Meet amazing friends and take away new lifetime memories at the most-watched parade in the world!

Safety and Responsibly

Escapees RV Club wants to make sure everyone has fun while keeping safety as our top priority, so there are a couple of changes to the Head Out Program or the HOPs. 

  • We will be following applicable CDC and state guidelines and an additional set of detailed health and safety rules that we have developed specifically for Escapees gatherings.
  • When you arrive, you will receive a name badge, and that will be your entry pass to our group activities.
  • There will be no potlucks or sharing of food. (But you are welcome to bring-your-own drinks and snacks to the socials, or you may bring your meal if one is not catered!
  • Masks will be required at any time that adequate social distancing is not possible. (Social distancing is a minimum of 6 ft. apart.)
  • Carpooling to offsite activities is not recommended, but if you do carpool, please wear your mask.
  • Please wash your hands with soap and warm water frequently.
  • Please use hand sanitizer when necessary.

Attendee agreement and liability waivers

Participants must sign an Attendee Participation Agreement and Liability Waiver when they arrive at the campground and “check-in” at the HOP. The HOP Hosts will give each attendee a copy of this agreement and ask them to sign and return it to the Host. (Each person must sign their own agreement—one per RV is not sufficient.)

In the Attendee Participation Agreement and Liability Waiver document, the Participant agrees, among other things: 

  • not to attend the HOP if they know they have been exposed to the novel coronavirus or have had symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 14 days;
  • immediately notify the Host if they are exposed or have symptoms during the Event, and to self-isolate (either in their RV or by leaving the Event) for the remainder of the HOP
  • to comply with all health and safety precautions established for the Event, whether by the Hosts, federal, state or local guidelines and regulations; and
  • to hold the Hosts, Organizers and Escapees harmless from any liability if they do become ill during the Event.
