(AP) Thousands of people in Southern California are lining the route of the 124th Rose Parade in Pasadena.


The die-hards staked out their spots early Monday with folding chairs, hammocks and portable barbeque grills. They brought in the new year by throwing marshmallows, shaving cream and tortillas, and then hunkered down to stay warm in sleeping bags.


The parade features floats covered with flowers and plant material and marching bands from across the country. It will be broadcasts around the world.


College student Brandy Grueter (GROO'-ter) spent the night on the sidewalk with her younger brother and saved spots for about 20 friends and family. She says she slept 20 minutes but would rally enough energy once the parade started.


The pre-dawn line at a Starbuck's stretched around the block.
