The celebrity co-hosts certainly embody this theme: Both Metz and Watson have won SAG Awards for their portrayals of sister-in-laws Kate Pearson and Beth Pearson on the Golden Globe-winning drama series This Is Us. Watson also penned an episode for the upcoming final season.
Every year, over a thousand white-glove volunteers spend more than 80,000 hours crafting the jaw-dropping 75-feet long floral floats the parade is known for. With effects such as pyrotechnics, smoke, waterfalls, streamers and bubbles, the floats annual delight audiences, in addition to thousands of performers, including 20 marching bands from around the world. The parade will kick off with a B-2 Spirit flyover, leading in to participants like equestrian teams, the USMC Mounted Color Guard and of course, the famous Rose Queen and her Royal Court.
The Rose Parade is produced by LX.TV, a production unit of the NBC Owned Television Stations.
