The Penn State Alumni Association posted information about events happening in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. Here are the events happening on December 31, known to some as New Year’s Eve and to others as Rose Bowl Eve.
The Rose Bowl Kickoff Luncheon is a high-energy event featuring celebrity sportscasters, Coach Joe Paterno (and the Pac-10 coach), football players, marching bands, and pep squads—and this year’s Rose Bowl Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Attendees also receive a unique, commemorative favor. You won’t want to miss this truly once-in-a-lifetime spectacular!
Penn State Pep Rally (Free, 3:30 pm, in front of the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza)
Thousands of Penn Staters and fans will get revved up for the big game at the Penn State Pep Rally with Coach Joe Paterno, President Graham Spanier, the football team, Blue Band, cheerleaders, the Nittany Lion, and more!
New Year’s Eve Party (Cost TBD, 7:30 pm, Location TBD)
