So many businesses have been affected by COVID-19, and the Tournament of Roses is no exception. After cancelling the 2021 New Year’s Day parade, the top brass at the group issued the following statement Monday:

“The Rose Queen® and Royal Court are iconic traditions, steeped in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses’ history. After thoughtful consideration, and due to the cancelation of the 2021 Rose Parade®, this year’s selection process for the Royal Court has been postponed and will resume in the fall of 2021. We look forward to continuing the treasured legacy and celebrating the 2022 Royal Court.    

“With this postponement, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses also announces an extension of eligibility – those who would have been eligible for the 2021 Royal Court are invited to apply for the 2022 Royal Court.”
