This morning I was able to shoot one of my favorite events of the year and I must say, the young ladies where very impressive!
I can guaranty you my High School report card didn’t look like theirs!
October 18, 2011) – The Pasadena Tournament of Roses named Drew Helen Washington as the 94th Rose Queen today. This announcement concludes a month-long process that began with approximately 1,000 Pasadena-area young women who participated in the Tournament of Roses Royal Court tryouts. Queen Drew was selected from the recently appointed seven-member Royal Court. The Rose Queen and Royal Court will reign over the 2012 Tournament of Roses festivities, culminating in the 123rd Rose Parade® presented by Honda and themed Just Imagine…, and the 98th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO.

Ok, as a female I have to say I love their dresses lol. But these photos are beautiful. I never heard of this event. Thanks for posting it
I’m surprised you never heard of the Rose Parade!
It’s held on January 1st every year.
Regarding the dresses, they came from Macy’s.
I love the expressions on the faces when they find out who won. Priceless.
The top shot is just great Michael.
