    Photos from the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     LloydBrown shot these photos on January 2 of the 123rd annual Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena, California. 'I was impressed by the equine entries, especially the Native American entry,' he said. 'Very beautiful animals.'

    Today was the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade, held in Pasadena, CA. Normally held on January 1, the parade has a "Never On a Sunday" tradition, so they had it today.


    This was my first time attending the parade, which was due in large part to the fact that my daughter recently moved to a home about 8 doors down from Colorado Boulevard. Since there were close to one million people lining Colorado Blvd., it really helped to have somewhere close to the route to park and an easy walk to our seats.


    The theme of the parade was "Just Imagine" and the floats all did a fine job of sticking to the theme.


    I took over 2,000 photos, so I can not put them all here. If you would like to see all the photos, please visit

    Happy 2012
