“Echoes of Success” will be the theme of the 2017 Rose Parade, Tournament of Roses President Brad Ratliff announced.

“‘Echoes of Success’ celebrates those people, organizations and institutions that play a part in the stories of the success of others,” Ratliff said.

“Success cannot be achieved alone. It takes the support, dedication, compassion and love of many others to help in finding that satisfaction of success. Family, friends and teachers contribute selflessly and tirelessly to the success of many. These influences in our lives, these people of selfless commitment, these echoes of success make us who we are.”

The 128th Rose Parade will be held on Jan. 2, 2017 because of the Tournament of Roses’ longtime “Never on Sunday” policy, which requires the parade to be held on Jan. 2 when New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday.
