    The 2021 Rose Parade has been canceled, Tournament of Roses officials announced on Wednesday, July 14, citing coronavirus concerns, although the Rose Bowl football game is still scheduled.

    What would have been the 132nd Rose Parade will instead be the fourth cancellation in the parade’s history, according to Tournament of Roses Chief Executive David Eads, who spoke to this newsgroup on Tuesday.

    He noted the previous three cancellations were all during World War II: in 1942, 1943 and 1945. In 1944, a “token parade” was held, in which three decorated cars traversed Colorado Boulevard.

    Even a token parade is unlikely in 2021, but Eads said Tournament officials are looking at alternatives which will be announced in the coming weeks.
