About the Show
Featuring lavish floral floats, high-stepping equestrian teams, marching bands from across the globe, a star-studded lineup of talent, hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the streets and millions more watching the telecast worldwide, The Tournament of Roses Parade is the most popular New Year's Day celebration in the world.
A grand tradition in every sense of the word and nicknamed "The Granddaddy of Them All," NBC has been broadcasting this spectacular New Year's Day parade for 87 years, beginning on radio in 1927 and then televising the event beginning in 1954. Last year's parade featured 44 extravagant floral floats - including one celebrating NBC's hit series The Voice - with Al Roker and Hoda Kotb co-hosting NBC's live coverage of the festivities from the sidelines.
Enjoyed for generations and celebrated by audiences young and old, The Tournament of Roses Parade is the perfect way for you and your family to bring in the New Year.
