Safety will be a top priority at Tournament of Roses Parade

The 130th Tournament of Roses Parade is coming up in a couple of weeks.

Tournament of Roses CEO and Executive Director David Eads says safety and security for parade participants and spectators is one of their top priorities.

“We work very closely with the Pasadena Police Department and all the different agencies throughout the county, be it the Highway Patrol, be it L.A. County Sheriff’s; also Federal agencies, Homeland Security and FBI. They all worked as a coordinated team to develop the security plan that we have for this year’s parade and insure that people can come out, have a terrific celebration, enjoy time with their families, but do it in a very safe environment.”

The parade route will be closed early to vehicular traffic to enhance public safety starting at noon on December 31 through 2 p.m. on January 1 along Colorado Blvd., from Orange Grove Blvd. to Sierra Madre Blvd., and northbound on Sierra Madre to Paloma St.

Prohibited items along the parade route include: weapons, sticks, poles, drones, glass bottles and any items which may cause injury or interfere with the parade or spectators’ enjoyment of the parade.

David Eads was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
