Rose Parade 2020- people fight the cold to claim perfect spots to celebrate this unique New Year’s Eve tradition

Have you ever witnessed the most unique new year celebrations? It is happening all the way in the city of Pasadena, California, northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

One of the weirdest ways to celebrate the new year eve


It’s a new year tradition like no other. If you visit the city on Colorado Blvd on a new year eve, you are going to find yourself amongst the stuff like marshmallows, corn tortillas with shaving cream and other creative objects which are used to pepper the cars over there, as they pass by.

People have a unique way to celebrate as they camp out to have the perfect spot to ring in 2020. The pre-Rose Parade celebration takes place on the 31st December night every year. Most of the people celebrate in a different fashion i.e by putting up a bonfire and roasting their marshmallows, most of them are used as ammo. Camping out overnight at the Rose Parade seems like fun.

Authorities closed Colorado Blvd around 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night in order to keep the area safe and secure for the overnight campers. Because it is a cold and chilly night, campers are allowed to have a small fire, but the fire must be elevated a foot off the ground, must be small and contained, and campers must have fire extinguishers.

As far as the marshmallow pelting, that all ended at 10:00 p.m. as well. Campers must clean up any remaining “ammo” between now and the start of the parade, and anyone who continues to throw objects could face a heavy fine.
