2013 Tournament of Roses Parade
The theme for the 2013 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade is “Oh the Places You'll Go!” and this year's LHM Float theme is “Jesus … The Way to Heaven!” 2013 marks our 65th year of participation and the LHM Float continues to be the only Christian Float in the world's most famous media event.
This year's parade theme, “Oh, the Places You'll Go!” invites us to imagine the places we can go. The 2013 LHM float “Jesus … The Way to Heaven!” reminds us that heaven is the ultimate place to go for all who call on the name of Jesus Christ to be saved. In John 14:3-4, Jesus reminds us, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." This place is heaven, and the only way to live with Jesus in heaven is to trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness your sins. The elements of the float depict God's promises in His Word: the path we travel to heaven (Matthew 7:14), God's Word guiding us on our journey (Psalm 119:105), and Jesus welcoming us with open arms at the gates of heaven showing us He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). It is our prayer that this year's float would be a reminder that everyone can spend an eternity in heaven through faith in Christ Jesus.
TV Viewing Tips (Home & Garden Channel is Best)
While the Tournament of Roses Parade is on most network channels, (ABC, CBS, NBC), the Lutheran Hour Float is not guaranteed coverage due to commercials and/or other TV commitments. For the best viewing of the parade, the Home and Garden channel shows the parade in its entirety on cable TV. Check your local listings for time and channel.
