Early on, the streets are no longer as crowded as in previous years – San Bernardino Sun

Pasadena’s Colorado Avenue, on a typical New Year’s Day morning, is packed with cold, sleepy-eyed but enthusiastic fans.

On Saturday, January 1, 2022, the streets are almost empty as the Rose Parade begins at 6 a.m.

“It’s pretty sparse,” said Arthur Rodriguez, sitting on a patio chair on Colorado Avenue near Lake Avenue. “Not many people like that.”

Why risk firsthand experience in a pandemic-stricken year? “My grandchildren,” said Rodriguez. “They’re at home in warm beds and I’m here to keep their place.”

Rodriguez said going to the polls at 6 a.m. is “a good thing” because people are spread out and socially distanced.

“We have front row seats,” said Frank Valenzuela of Huntington Park on the corner of Lake and Colorado. “Perhaps people are just scared to go out.”

Some of the biggest artists still show up at noon on Friday, the annual exercise for the most dedicated fans, camping overnight for the best spots.

But there are many openings left early Saturday. IT is still to be seen if the streets will be full by the time of the 8 am parade

The number of COVID-19 tanks has skyrocketed in recent weeks, which may prompt more people to watch TV from home than brave the streets of Pasadena.
