The 2021 Tournament of Roses Parade, an institution in Pasadena, California, since 1891, has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is the first time in 76 years the parade, held each year on New Year’s Day, has been canceled. This year would have marked the 132nd edition.

“With reluctance and tremendous disappointment, the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association announces that, in accordance with Gov. [Gavin] Newsom’s Phase IV reopening schedule, and after thoughtful consideration of the restrictions and guidelines in place as a result of COVID-19, we are unable to host the 2021 Rose Parade,” the organizers of the event said in a statement.

The parade was previously canceled in 1942, 1943 and 1945 due to World War II. Broadcast all around the world, the spectacle-driven event is famed for its procession of flowery floats, horses and marching bands. While further out than most of the events currently being canceled, work on the following year’s Rose Parade typically begins in February.

The parade generally coincides with the Rose Bowl, a college football playoff semifinal game. Plans for the game are still under consideration.
