Just sat down to watch the rose bowl parade to see if Disneyland entered a float. No! Why are they only showing 1982? Did something happen that we can't see this years parade? Weird!

The reason they won't have the parade on a Sunday is because way back when, the parade would spook horses tied up outside the churches. Obviously no one rides horses to church now, but the tradition still stands. - PonyGrrl  275.4 #1107 12:28PM
Oh I thought it was because it was Sunday - church day in general. But that makes sense. - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 12:36PM
It's definitely tomorrow, my son is marching in it. He is going to be at the very beginning with the RCC band and he will be holding the letter "D" in rose parade! Disney is performing with them too :o) Go Jake!!! - SoCalJean  171.4 #2380 12:45PM
That's really cool! I'll lookout for him when it comes on tv πŸ˜„ - rbeezy  703.0 #275 12:47PM
He is super excited! - SoCalJean  171.4 #2380 12:52PM
Asdfghjkl he's in the RCC band? Jealous. I wish I could go there but I'm already enrolled in a community college through my high school so I probably won't go there. - acpowers13  148.8 #2732 12:54PM
now I'm going to yell out "go Jake!!" - SammyJo  348.7 #680 12:54PM
I bet! It's a huge honor to be in the Rose Parade 😊 - rbeezy  703.0 #275 12:56PM
It's tomorrow! - CxD_CM  518.6 #401 9:25AM
I *think* it's going to be on tomorrow? But I'm not sure. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:26AM
Ok, so I guess I am right, lol - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:32AM
Haha I know! I was freaking out too!! - Hop_Low  268.5 #1181 9:27AM
The parade is tomorrow due to religious reasons. They never have it on Sunday. I'm with you and wanted to watch it today! Enjoy today and Happy New Year! - grumpypapa  5473.8 #19 9:31AM
Rose Parade is on Monday this year, it is never on Sunday. - tink08  151.2 #2697 9:32AM
It interferes with football, so they moved it to Monday! I think it's ridiculous! - akpoppins  263.8 #1224 9:32AM
It's sure to religious purposes, if the 1st falls on a Sunday then they have it on Monday so people can go to church. - Seacow  486.1 #437 9:42AM
I'd rather go to church. - MagicalCaprice  480.7 #442 10:36AM
Maybe true however, it also interferes with Sunday football and they would have to rearrange all the regular season to make up for the games missed due to the parade and rose bowl being on so that is another reason it is delayed! - akpoppins  263.8 #1224 12:31PM
Ok, so I guess I am right, lol - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:32AM
Oh well! BOA had a cute It's a small World float in 1982: - topdisneymom  240.1 #1475 9:37AM

The Rose Parade will never happen on a Sunday. It was a decision they made 123 years ago!!! I'll be there!!!!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 10:34AM
I will too :) - SammyJo  348.7 #680 12:55PM

one of the local stations, KTLA, is showing the 1982 parade today - phisigduchesscv  256.4 #1287 11:25AM
The parade is tomorrow because it's a Sunday. Idk why - Scrumpy_N_PansShadow  37.0 #5391 12:29PM

the Rose Parade is never on a Sunday because of the crowds coming out of the churchs on Colorado Blvd would scare the horses during the parade. Thus, if New Years is one a Sunday, its on the 2nd.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 12:38PM
They never have a rose parade on Sunday do to tradition so it will be tomorrow  - MelB  108.6 #3458 12:38PM
just like the football game at the rose bowl is never on Sunday too. - SammyJo  348.7 #680 12:47PM

I'm guessing it's because everyone involved with the Rose Parade decided to go to Disneyland instead, which would explain the massive crowd at the parks. - gerardlim57  15.4 #8459 1:30PM
