The Pasadena Tournament of Roses chose Erika Karen Winter, a 17-year old senior at Flintridge Preparatory School as its 98th Rose Queen for the 127th Rose Parade on Thursday, October 22 at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Completing the 2016 Court were Rose Princesses Bryce Marie Bakewell, Flintridge Sacerd Heart Academy; Natalie Breanne Hernandez-Barber, Alverno High School; Rachelle Chacal Renee Liu, San Marino High School; Donaly Elizabeth Marquez, Blair High School; Regina Marché Pullens, Maranatha High School; and Sarah Sumiko Shaklan, La Canada High School.

Of 900 young ladies, the Royal Court was chosen based on their academic achievement, community service, and public speaking abilities. The Royal Court will make up to 100 community and media appearances, culminating with the 127th Rose Parade and the 102nd Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 2016.


“Rose Queen Erika and each member of the Royal Court have embarked on an exciting adventure and we are eager for them to encourage others to find their adventure throughout their community,” said Tournament of Roses President Matthiessen.
