“Find Your Adventure” in 2016

Building upon a year of inspiring stories, 2016 Tournament of Roses® President Mike Matthiessen encourages communities across the country to take action through the 127th Rose Parade® theme, “Find Your Adventure.”

Adventures can range in size and splendor. Through them we learn about ourselves, others and our surrounding environment – but first we have to find them.

Leading by example, the Tournament of Roses has embarked on an adventure of its own by collaborating with the National Park Service for the 2016 Rose Parade.

“As proponents of the American spirit, we encourage people to find beauty in the landscape that builds the backdrop of their lives,” said Matthiessen.

Both the Tournament of Roses and the National Park Service aim to preserve history, connect people through real-life experiences and engage the public in new adventures. Through this unique alliance, the 2016 Rose Parade will shine light on the centennial celebration of our nation’s national parks.

“Our hope for the New Year is that however you define it, you will find your adventure and enrich your life,” said Matthiessen.

  1. not only is my mom and I float decorators through one of the builders of the Rose Parade which each year is an adventure of itself just to see what float we will be assigned to and work on. We have Wedding & Event planners for over 35 years and each event that we are part of is always an adventure to see where it takes us and the decor that we get to design and work with. I’m thrilled at this years theme Find Your Adventure

  2. National Park Yosmite Forest Ranger Shelton Johnson should be the honorary Rose Parade Marshall.

    I hope someone does a Rock Climbing Wall with those two climbers who just scaled Half Dome on a float too, along with Joshua Tree Rock Climbers and White Water Rafters & Kayakers showing how it’s done and how we all need to be more adventures in our life’s and explore the great places that America has to offer.

    Can’t wait to get these floats put together again. I’ve been in so many home town local parades as a child and as an adult. Love it all. Love my America!
