Celebrate New Year's with Friends of IPTV

June 6, 2014

Ring in 2015 with Friends of IPTV during our exciting tour to southern California December 29, 2014 – January 2, 2015. This five day trip includes exclusive access to concerts, dining and even a parade, all in the balmy climate of southern California.

Attendees can relax in the sun or explore the town as they celebrate the beginning of the New Year. Highlights from the tour include the world famous Tournament of Roses Parade — a New Year’s tradition that began in 1890. Today more than one million spectators line the parade route every year; however, our tour includes special reserved seating for prime viewing of this one-of-a-kind event.

We’ll find Pasadena abuzz with parade preparations and get a sneak-peek as final touches are put on the massive floats. We’ll also attend Bandfest, a special opportunity to see the talented marching band musicians, dancers and auxiliary performers in action as they rehearse for their spotlight. Each show features spectacular music from bands across the nation, with an in-depth look at their preparation for the 5.5 mile parade walk.

Finally, join us for the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner Dance, with live entertainment and a champagne toast to ring in the New Year. If you’re just not ready to come back to the Iowa winter after the trip, you can enjoy an optional 3-night Las Vegas Excursion.
