It was a brisk New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif., where more than 700,000 spectators and 88 entries enjoyed the 126th annual Rose Parade. This year the parade theme was “Inspiring Stories,” selected by Tournament of Roses President Richard L. Chinen. The theme, Chinen explained, was about ordinary people who do extraordinary things.
