Press Release posted 1/18/14 – Richard L. Chinen officially announced the theme for the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade, “Inspiring Stories”. “The 2015 theme allows us to reflect on and appreciate the many people around us who elevate the human spirit by who they are, what they have done and what they continue to do,” said Chinen. “Inspiring Stories pays tribute to those who have loved unconditionally, persevered courageously, endured patiently and accomplished much on behalf of others. Whether for justice, for charity or for any other good, these stories stand out because they are about those who reach out beyond themselves with humility and resolve.”
