For the last several years, the TRFA has invited all the Torrance high schools to submit a drawing that best represents the theme of the parade. The 2023 theme is “Turning the Corner.”
The TRFA contest winner was Ruth Pinchaent. She graduated from West High School in June and is now attending college. In her submission, she wrote, “. . . each change is an opportunity to explore your self-image in a new way!”
2023 ROSE PARADE THEME – TURNING THE CORNER
This year, the 2023 Pasadena Tournament of Roses President, Amy Wainscott, announced “Turning the Corner” as the Pasadena Tournament of Roses theme; celebrating the unlimited potential that each new year brings, “The 2023 theme celebrates turning a corner. Whether that corner is actual or figurative like the unlimited potential that each new year brings—we all enjoy the opportunity of a fresh start,” explained Wainscott. “Turning a corner means rising above – alone, or with family, friends and community. This year, as we turn the corner together, we share in the hope, beauty and joy of what 2023 will bring.”
