With the Rose Bowl being held today we are taking a moment to look at this Rose Bowl Vintage Postcard 1950s.  This year the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl are on a Monday not New Year’s Day because of a “Never on a Sunday Tradition” began in 1893.

Today has been the 128th Rose Parade on Monday, January 02, 2017.  And the Rose Bowl game today with USC vs. Penn State – with USC winning the Rose Bowl 52-49.
