Rose Parade Crowd Ready

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Thousands of people are camped out along
Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena awaiting the start of the 2009 Rose
Parade.

Police say four people were arrested for public intoxication and another man was arrested for throwing beer bottles into the crowd. The man was subdued by bystanders until police arrived and arrested him for assault with a deadly weapon.

The parade theme is "Hats Off to Entertainment" and its grand
marshal is 82-year-old actress and former "Dancing with the
Stars" contestant Cloris Leachman. Along with the floats, the
parade will feature 21 marching bands and 18 equestrian units along
the 5½-mile route.

The parade gets under way at 8 a.m Thursday.
