The City of Pasadena has advised all permitted outdoor dining restaurants along Colorado Blvd. to remove their outdoor dining amenities within their barrier enclosures by Tuesday, December 14, 2021, to allow for the Rose Parade.
By News Desk
City staff will begin removing traffic control barriers along Colorado Boulevard beginning Wednesday, December 15th in order to return public streets to normal operations for the staging of the Parade. Following the removal of the traffic control barriers, City departments will begin re-striping parking stalls, perform maintenance and then proceed with other regularly scheduled parade preparation work. The traffic control barriers will be reinstalled by January 6th.
In addition to the removal of traffic control barriers, sidewalk dining along certain portions of the parade route will be suspended beginning 8:00 am on December 31, 2021, through 8:00 am on January 2, 2022. The suspension of sidewalk dining applies to businesses that have outdoor dining (within sidewalks or parklets) along the parade route and adjacent cross streets, within one block of the route. The City of Pasadena annually suspends sidewalk dining to accommodate the influx of people in the city and spectators along the route.
Lisa Derderian, spokesperson for the city, said:
The City of Pasadena appreciates the cooperation of its business community as the City prepares for the return of the 133rd Tournament of Roses Parade.
