Volunteers finished floats for the Rose Parade, just in time for the event on New Year's Day. Antonio Castelan reports for the NBC4 News at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012.
Planning to camp out Monday night to get a good place to see the Rose Parade?
Here are some tips from Pasadena’s police and fire departments aimed at keeping people safe (and warm).
• Dress warmly: it’s supposed to go down into the 30s Monday night. Seniors and children are especially vulnerable, and could get hypothermia if they’re not bundled up.
• Wait: People aren’t allowed to start assembling until noon on Monday. And they can’t go past the so-called “blue honor line” until 11 p.m. Kids aren’t allowed to stay past 10 p.m. without adult supervision.
• With regard to fire: no bonfires are allowed. Small, professionally made barbecues are legal, but only if they’re kept a foot above the ground and you bring both water and a fire extinguisher.
• Eat: Remember to bring or buy food and water.
• Open containers of alcohol are not allowed.
• Empty chairs are not allowed.
• Sofas are not allowed.
• Selling space is not allowed.
• Throwing stuff at the parade as it is going by … not allowed.
• In case of emergency, call 626-744-4241 from a cellular phone or 9-1-1 from a landline. Be prepared to tell emergency operators the cross streets where you are located.
