PASADENA, Ca. (Dec. 17, 2021) – The Pasadena Tournament of Roses® today announces the highly anticipated Grand Finale of its 133rd Rose Parade® presented by Honda on Saturday, January 1, 2022. As the two-hour mark approaches and the final float begins its trip down Colorado Blvd., four members of the Golden Knights – the United States Army Parachute team – will drop out of the sky and onto the street to do a live football toss from the Parade route to the Rose Bowl Stadium. Their descent will be accompanied by Timothy Fletcher, the drummer who has been making waves on Instagram and Tiktok with magical beats.
Following the landing of the Golden Knights, Best New Artist GRAMMY® nominee, CMA New Artist of the Year & ACM New Male Artist of the Year Jimmie Allen will perform his hit song “Good Times Roll,” from his Bettie James Gold Edition album. Allen will be accompanied by his four-piece band, Rose Parade Dancers, the Mark Keppel Dance Company and the Rose Parade Flag Bearers.
Traveling from Nashville, Tennessee to Pasadena, California and into the hearts of millions, Allen made history as the first Black artist to launch a career with two consecutive No. 1 hits off his 2018 debut album, Mercury Lane. His 2x platinum debut single “Best Shot” claimed the number one spot on Country radio for three weeks. Allen is nominated for Best New Artist at the 64th Annual Grammy® Awards in 2022, has been hailed by GRAMMY.com as one of “5 Black Artists Rewriting Country Music” and has amassed more than 1 billion on-demand streams.
For millions of viewers around the world, the Rose Parade is an iconic New Year’s Day tradition. Join us on Saturday, January 1, 2022, to experience the floats, bands and equestrians as they parade down Colorado Blvd.
