Mr. Pasadena & his crew circa ’86

All the grandstands are almost up and people are thinking ahead to December 31st and whether they should or should not camp out on the parade route this year. Along with the help of the Pasadena Fire Department , I am bringing you a few simple safety tips that you need to know about before you camp out. The parade route will be a safer place if everyone follows the rules and regulations intended for the safety of all parade-goers. To all my followers have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve party and cheers to camping out on the parade route!

What You Can Do:

  • Overnight camping is permitted only on the night of Dec. 31. 
  • A permanent position on the sidewalk may be maintained along the parade route beginning at noon on Dec. 31.  The “Blue Line” is the honor line.  All persons and property such as blankets, chairs, etc., must remain on the curb until 11 p.m. on Dec. 31.  At that time spectators may move out to the honor line.
  • Small, professionally manufactured barbeques elevated at least one foot off the ground are allowed on the parade route.  25’ from building or other combustibles.  A fire extinguisher and water must be readily available.
  • Minors under the age of 18 may be on the parade route from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. only if they are under the supervision of adults.
  • Dress for cold weather.  Children and seniors may need extra layers of clothing to avoid hypothermia.
  • Stay hydrated and consume nourishing meals to avoid dehydration.
  • Report any suspicious activities and packages to emergency authorities along the parade route.
  • In case of emergency, call (626) 744-4241 from cell phones or 9-1-1 from landline phones.  Know cross streets from where you are calling.

           What You Can’t Do:

  • Open containers of alcohol are illegal on public streets, sidewalks and all other public areas.
  • Tents, sofas and boxes of any type that can be used as stools or seats are prohibited are not permitted along the route. 
  • Unoccupied chairs are not allowed.
  • Bonfires are strictly prohibited and considered “illegal burns.”
  • Fireworks are prohibited except as part of scheduled official events.
  • No items may be sold along the parade route without a permit. 
  • No public areas (sidewalks, curbs, gutters, streets) may be cordoned or roped off. 
  • No ladders or scaffolding may be used as elevation for viewing the activities.
  • It is illegal to buy, sell or give away horns on the parade route.
  • Pets are not recommended along the parade route because they are easily frightened with sudden, loud noises.
  • Selling space along the parade route, other than grandstand seating, is illegal.
  • Throwing any projectile into the parade, including seemingly harmless items such as tortillas, marshmallows, flowers, etc., is prohibited.
  • Vehicles obstructing emergency lanes will be towed.

  1. These accounts can be used to pay for a variety of different health services, including doctor visits and
    prescriptions. This can result in substantial savings if your
    wife our husband is more than five years older or
    younger than you. The MIB is a central database of medical
    information shared by major insurance companies.

  2. Author is a well known authority on health insurance Exchange
    in the US. For example, a PPO might cover eighty five percent of the cost to visit a doctor who is in a PPO network.
    This, over the long run will keep prices fair
    and competitive.

  3. Over the last year, I have learned to live without health insurance.
    For most people the cost of drug rehab services
    would make them entirely unattainable. The maximum number of
    employees to still be eligible for small business health
    insurance plans varies from insurance company to
    insurance company.

  4. Using a federal “data hub,” Identification, citizenship and immigration status, as well as
    income details, will be verified in as close to real time as possible
    by pinging Social Security, Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue
    Service. You must have often wondered why you need health insurance.

    Deciding upon the maximum that you are willing to shell out
    for health insurance is vital for making the right choice.

  5. This is actually a federal program that offers the residents of Georgia
    a unique health insurance program that is meant for children.

    Don’t make any final decisions about health insurance until you know all the choices available to you. If you’re going to be traveling or living in Thailand longer than just a few weeks, you should consider getting health insurance.

  6. Their goal to get you as healthy as possible as quickly as possible should be of value.
    An advantage of a health care fund is you will not be taxed on the money you put into one.
    The card allows you to have access to state healthcare in European
    Economic Area countries, such as Iceland, France
    and Spain, for a reduced fee and sometimes even for free.

  7. Wonderful site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums that cover the
    same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!
