As many of you may know the Pasadena Tournament of Roses is a non-profit organization found in 1890 that famously hosts the Rose Parade, America’s New Years celebration. On October 23, 2018, the Announcement and Coronation of the 101th Rose Queen® and Presentation of the 2019 Royal Court took place at the Pasadena Playhouse sponsored by Citizens Business Bank. At this event, one of the seven girls was selected to be the 101st Rose Queen. Announced by the current Tournament of Roses President, Mr. Gerald Freeny, the 2019 Rose Queen is Louise Siskel. Louise is the first Rose Queen to have glasses and will reign over the 2019 ‘Melody of Life’ Rose Parade presented by Honda. Congratulations to Louise and we look forward to seeing her and her court on January 1st.
