EVENTS

The Rose Parade Line up along the route for the 122nd parade with nearly 700,000 other revelers. Floats, equestrian spectacles and more roses than could ever be counted make one of the year's most spectacular events. Beware, though — die-hards gather as early as New Year's Eve for prime locations. The parade begins at Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena and ends at Sierra Madre Boulevard and Villa Street. 8 a.m. Free. For the full route, see tournamentofroses.com

Venice Penguin Club Swim Of all the ways to greet the new year, the most bracing is surely diving into the frigid waters of the Pacific Ocean. These intrepid swimmers will do just that, embarking on a brisk 400-yard outing. In addition to the glory, all finishers will receive a certificate, and snacks and hot beverages will be on hand. Sign-up begins at 11 a.m. Venice Breakwater, Venice Boulevard at Ocean Front Walk, L.A. Noon. Free. (310) 390-5700. http://www.swim.net/scaq

Free Day at the Autry This year, New Year's Day is Free Day at the Autry, where current exhibitions include "Siqueiros in Los Angeles: Censorship Defied," an array of works that the acclaimed Mexican muralist created during a sojourn in the City of Angels in 1932 (the exhibition is soon to close, on Jan. 9), and "The Art of Native American Basketry: A Living Tradition," more than 250 baskets drawn from one of the largest holdings of its kind in the world belonging to Autry-partnered Southwest Museum of the American Indian. Autry National Center, 4700 Western Heritage Way, L.A. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (323) 667-2000. http://www.theautry.org

Disney on Ice: Let's Celebrate! Disney's new ice show is something of a celebration of celebrations: Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear and other characters cavort through holiday fun including a Valentine's Day ball, a Halloween haunt, a winter wonderland, a Hawaiian luau and even an unbirthday party. Citizens Business Bank Arena, 4000 E. Ontario Center Parkway, Ontario. 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. $16-$65. (800) 745-3000. http://www.disneyonice.com
