The Pasadena Tournament of Roses(R) announced plans for an audio tour of the floats featured in the 119th Rose Parade today. The audio files, which were created to enhance the viewing experiences of visitors at Post Parade: A Showcase of Floats, are available for download on iTunes(R) and Amazon MP3.

The free audio tour is the first-ever produced by the Tournament of Roses. It begins with details about the making of a float and continues to provide interesting details about each of the 46 floats featured in the 2008 Rose Parade in the order that they appear in the Parade. Tracks on the tour are matched to float numbers, which are displayed on the floats at Post Parade and are available in advance from the Tournament of Roses website at http://www.tournamentofroses.com.

The entire tour is approximately two hours long and is the perfect companion for the Rose Parade fan who wishes to learn more about each float while watching the Parade, visiting the float Decorating Places, or while taking the self-guided walking tour at Post Parade: A Showcase of Floats.

"We are very excited about this new way for our guests to enjoy Post Parade and the entire Rose Parade experience. We often hear that guests want to know more information about the floats and our audio tour provides an easy way to do just that," said Pam McNeely, Chairman of the Post-Parade committee.
