Jan. 1, 2011 will usher in the 93rd Rose Court, a tradition that has become a highlight of the New Year's Day celebrations in Pasadena. Court members serve as the face of the Tournament of Roses, making hospital visits and hosting the visiting football players that will compete at the Rose Bowl Game. In addition, the Rose Queen and her court members ride on a float in the annual Rose Parade.
