The Buhos Marching Band from Veracruz, Mexico participates in the 128th Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, January 2, 2017.
The Rose Parade, also known as the Tournament of Roses Parade, is part of "America's New Year Celebration" held in Pasadena, California each year on New Year's Day, or on January 2 if New Year's Day falls on a Sunday. The parade's Never on Sunday tradition dates to 1893, the first year since the start of the event that New Years Day fell on a Sunday. To avoid frightening horses that would be hitched outside churches on a Sunday the parade was moved to the next day, January 2. / AFP / Robyn Beck (Photo credit should read ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images)
