PASADENA, Calif. (CIRCA) — The 2019 Tournament of Roses Parade will mark 130 years of the iconic celebration. The New Year's Day parade includes bands, equestrian units, and of course, floats.
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.
