I don't think they even show it over here, so no.

THANK YOU!!!! I am so glad I'm not alone! Same with the Macy's Parade too. These people think they're play-by-play announcing for a football game! I wish they could just shut up! :evil: :roll:
Yes! I totally agree!!!! Any televised parade is like that...I like it when they announce who it is, but then I just want to enjoy it!

We went to the Tournament of Roses parade about 5 years ago and it was wonderful to simply enjoy it...however, we didn't know who was on what floats, so we missed that aspect. :(

We completely forgot it was on and caught the tail end of it! I was diasppointed that it was Celine Dion singing, I'm not a big fan of hers. But, it was cool to see the GF!

I forgot how much the GF reminds me of the DLP Hotel at the main gate of DLP's MK. It's a cool hotel. :D

What really sucks, is it's all taped in Oct. Nov!!!! I remember when I was a CP and while it was still 90 degrees out they would have Mandy Moore and other performers were all bundled up like it was 30 outside!!! I felt so bad for them!

So far I about 2/3 through the parade. I have noticed numerous issues with it. The aerial shots were not looked at close enough since they are showing some backstage areas like the Monorail barn. The sequence of angles does not flow properly which is seen by the buildings/stores that are next to the parade floats from each angle. I might be paranoid, but these are some of the things that really grind my gears.

Len90, it's Hollywood, accuracy gives way to the "story that must be told".

I watched it. I have to say, last years was better because they showed a lot of footage from previous years Xmas parades. I especially enjoyed the parts of the parade last year where they showed people who voiced characters from all the greats. Example: The woman who was the voice of Ariel sang LIVE...I just think thats better than the Jonas Brothers :ariel:
