Behind the scenes of Tournament of Roses parade set-up

The parade is known for its beautiful floats, and each year, volunteers spend more than 80,000 hours decorating them. There are 935 volunteers this year working hard to finish the floats' decorations. Honda, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2019, will lead the parade with its display of floats.

Chipotle Mexican Grill will introduce its first float in the Rose Parade. The float features a giant red tractor, which will symbolize the work of local farmers for its restaurants.

The theme of this year's parade is "Melody of Life." For Rose Parade ticket information, click here.
