Rose Parade brings in the New Year in So Cal

The Rose Parade will bring in the New Year here in Southern California.
Paul Little, President and CEO of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce says it’s a big win for the area.
“Regionally, it’s a 170 million dollars that visitors for New Year’s pour into the Greater L.A. area.”
The parade and the Rose Bowl Game also provides 2,100 year-round jobs in the area. Last year, 700,000 people attended the parade, many of them coming from out of town.
“It’s still on a lot of people’s bucket list to see it in person, and those of us who have seen it in person, it is such a different experience, no matter how large your television set might be; seeing the floats in person and the bands, the equestrians, is a unique experience.”
Paul Little was a guest on 790 KABC.
