Inspiring Stories The Tournament of Roses Troop makes its appearance in the Tournament of Roses Parade every year.

Each year a new Troop is formed by selected Eagle Scouts from the Greater Los Angeles Area Council and selected Gold Awardees (Girl Scouts) from the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles .

Together, these Scouts join to form the "Tournament Troop" and are entrusted with leading the opening Flag Ceremony and carrying the banners announcing the award-winning float entries in the annual parade.
