Rose Bowl: Tournament of Roses
Tournament of Roses: Rose Bowl Queens
Each year over 1000 girls between the ages of 17 to 21, try out. Six princesses and one queen are chosen. They are high school and college students within the Pasadena City College district attendance area.
The coronation of the Rose Queen and presentation of the Royal Court are held during a coronation luncheon at the end of October.
The winners then ride on a float in the parade, and carry out duties in promotion of the Tournament, mainly during its duration and prelude. Their duties include attending over one hundred events in the Southern California area. The Bohle Company has handled the public relations for nearly 3 decades.
