The Rose Bowl is the longest standing Bowl Game in college football history. The game is traditionally played on January 1st and brings in thousands to participate in fun, family-friendly pre-game activities, watching the Rose Bowl parade, or attending the game itself.
This year, the weather during pre-game festivities definitely brought attention to the Bowl a bit earlier than usual. Pre-game festivities are held throughout the Pasadena, CA venue and its surroundings.
A dust devil blew through part of the Rose Bowl fan area on Wednesday, tossing tents into the air and sending fans fleeing in all directions. The mini tornado-like gust, which was caught on film, knocked over at least two people. Four people suffered minor injuries.
