The cement has been poured, the bricks have been set and after weeks of construction, the first installment of the rose mosaic located just outside of Gate A at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena will be revealed July 1 at a “Brick Bash” from 6 – 9 p.m.
Brought to life by the joint efforts of the Tournament of Roses® and Legacy Connections, the Brick Campaign enables sports fans and community members to become part of the stadium’s rich history, one brick at a time, by purchasing and engraving the bricks used to make the mosaic.
Adding to the stadium’s timeless appeal, the 27,000 brick mosaic is located outside of Gate A in the plaza leading to the main entrance. Football fans even have the option to position their bricks in designated locations for their preferred Big Ten and Pac-12 teams.
In addition to looking for his brick, Tournament of Roses President Rich Chinen will be part of a ribbon cutting ceremony at 6:45 p.m. with Mayor of Pasadena Bill Bogaard, Rose Bowl Operating Company Board of Directors President Victor Gordo and Chair of the Philanthropic Rose Bowl Legacy Campaign Andrea Van de Kamp.
