Guess who is performing with past celebrities and cast members in the Dancing With The Stars float during the nationally televised Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena? If you’re thinking Dave Koz, you guessed right.
Koz is a confirmed fan of ABC’s reality series and has even attended live shows. And it just so happens that Cloris Leachman, a contestant during the last season, is the Grand Marshal of this year’s Rose Parade. Koz, who just concluded his annual Dave Koz & Friends Christmas tour, says he’s going to make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before.
The annual Rose Parade, first staged in the late 1800s to showcase the mild Southern California winter weather, is now in its 120th year and will be televised live on Jan. 1 at 8 a.m. Pacific time. The parade, whose theme this year is Hats Off to Entertainment, will be broadcast on ABC, NBC, Univision, HGTV and the Travel Channel, among others, and will also been seen in more than 200 international territories.Posted by Brian Soergel at December 30, 2008 12:34 AM
