PASADENA — While many camped out overnight for a chance to view the 121st annual Tournament of Roses Parade, Wisconsin resident Kristin Edwards snagged a prime spot of parade real estate shortly after 5 a.m. Saturday.
"This is just unbelievable," said Edwards, who found space for her husband and two children's four chairs along Colorado Boulevard. After the parade, they would head to the Rose Bowl for the Wisconsin-TCU matchup.
"My husband went to Madison," she said. "He's just a diehard Badger fan."
Edwards and her family were among the hundreds of thousands of people who braved the early morning, long lines and near-freezing temperatures for a chance to view the parade.
