Route 66 News

Yet another reason to watch the Rose Parade

The Pasadena (Calif.) Star-News has a list of all the entries for the annual Rose Parade, set for New Year’s Day. Here’s one float that will interest roadies:

NEW MEXICO: “Hats off to New Mexico – Beep Beep!”
Zooming down the roadway of old Route 66, cartoon character Wile E Coyote, strapped atop an ACME rocket, is making yet another futile attempt to catch the Road Runner, just as he shifts into high gear.

Incidentally, the parade itself is right on Route 66’s Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. It will be broadcast on ABC, NBC, Univision,  HGTV, Travel Channel, RFD-TV as well as KWHY and KTLA in the Los Angeles area.
