I grew-up in the San Fernando Valley in the 50s and 60s, so have been to most of the areas shown in this video.
I eventually moved to Orange County, then Northern California where I live today.
When we visit our old stomping grounds, I have to say I’m glad we left. Things are pretty rough in many of the areas we used to enjoy. Too bad.
I’ve been around for a long time, so have seen all of these dance moves over the years. This video is over ten years old, but is still quite entertaining.
If you missed the parade, or want to just enjoy it without the stupid commentary and commercials, this is for you.
This video was filmed in the grandstand section known as the Cal Poly section across KTLA5 in front of the Norton Simon Museum and shows the off-camera portion of the parade, which was not shown on camera.
The photographer apologizes for any shakiness as the Tournament of Roses did not allow him to bring his tripod.
