It wouldn't be New Year's without the Tournament of Roses Parade. Well, this year it wouldn't be Jan. 2 without the parade, given that Jan. 1 fell on a Sunday.
And there are plenty of ways to watch the floats, bands, horses and more.
You can watch it live at 9 a.m. on ABC/Ch. 4, NBC/Ch. 5, HGTV, RFDTV and the Hallmark Movie Channel.
And if you aren't up that early, you can watch it tape-delayed at 1 p.m. on the Hallmark Channel and 5 p.m. On RFDTV.
