Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Small album of photographs of the 11th Tournament of Roses Parade, held in Pasadena, California on Jan. 1, 1900.
The Rose Parade was created in 1890 by the Valley Hunt Club of Pasadena, whose members--many of them emigrés from the East and Midwest--as a way to show off the mild winter weather of Southern California, and promote the beauty and lush fertility of the area. The early Rose Parades, with their horse-drawn carriages decorated with flowers, and community games in the town square, soon grew to include marching bands and more elaborate floats, and by 1895 had become too large for the Club to manage. The Tournament of Roses Association was created to oversee operations and development of the Parade, which has continued to flourish up to the present day.
