The Rose Parade & The Game

What better way to have spent New Years Day, at the Rose Bowl Parade. The parade was started to celebrate California's mild winter climate, the Tournament's founders and Valley Hunt Club members, Dr. Francis Rowland and Prof. Charles Holder, created a floral festival in 1890 patterned after the "Battle of the Flowers" in Nice, France. Yep France…Frenchies, French Bulldogs, France...1890 was a long time ago. I don't think we were born yet, but maybe momma was. We wanted to share some highlights from the parade.








Following the parade peoples watched No. 8 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and the No. 7 Oregon Ducks battle it out. Hope everyone enjoyed the parade and the game! Our friend Brutus may have a lot more to say about the game.


Well friends, hope you enjoyed the parade and the game.
Have a fun day
Benny & Lily
