As most of us step into a new year filled with all of life that blends so seamlessly — hope and caution, joy and sadness, love and longing — Pasadena hosted the 134th

This year’s theme for the parade – an expression of hope and resilience – is ‘Turning the Corner’.

Giffords led a procession of 39 floats, 21 marching bands and 16 cavalry units.
