The Tournament of Roses announced the theme of next year’s Rose Parade will be “Dream. Believe. Achieve.” It’s the same theme the Tournament intended for 2021’s parade before it was canceled.

Tournament officials had previously said other aspects of 2021’s planned parade were rolling over to 2022 — anyone who qualified to be a member of the Royal Court in 2021 can run in 2022, all the bands and performers were invited back, too — the theme was still a question mark.

That is, until a Thursday evening news release arrived from the Tournament of Roses, explaining that the nonprofit’s Board of Directors confirmed last year’s president and chairman of the board, Dr. Robert Miller, would stay in the post that usually rotates annually.

Every other member of the nonprofit’s Executive Committee will also maintain their respective positions, then restart the usual rotations after the 2022 parade.

The members of the Executive Committee are:

  • Dr. Bob Miller, 2022 President;
  • Amy Wainscott, Executive Vice President – 2023 President;
  • Alex Aghajanian, Treasurer – 2024 President;
  • Ed Morales, Secretary – 2025 President;
  • Mark Leavens, Vice President – 2026 President;
  • Terry Madigan, Vice President – 2027 President;
  • Pam Knapp, Vice President – 2028 President;
  • Craig Washington, Vice President – 2029 President;
  • Laura Farber, Immediate Past President, serves on the Executive Committee as well as the five appointed at-large members; Zabrina Alibadbad, Tiffany Gardner, Cecil Griffin, David Thaxton and Susy Woo.

When the parade was initially canceled, Tournament of Roses Chief Executive David Eads said, “That theme was established late last year. It’s not necessarily reflective of what’s happening currently.”

In lieu of a parade, the Tournament of Roses put on a two-hour television special for New Year’s Day this year, featuring many of the seniors in high school and college marching bands, who may have lost the chance to play in next year’s parade despite the invitation to return.
