In addition, for the first time HGTV will broadcast the pageantry live in 3D to homes where it is available.

HGTV will feature its own float----a spectacular replica of the HGTV Dream Home 2012. The float will include appearances by designers John Gidding, Curb Appeal; Casey Noble, Design on a Dime; and contractors/designers Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, hosts of Kitchen Cousins.

Durie, along with Entertainment Tonight's O'Dell, also host of HGTV's upcoming series Celebrities at Home (w.t.), and Weller, an 11-year veteran of the network's Rose Parade telecasts, will provide a wealth of information and unique perspectives on each breathtaking floral float, band and equestrian unit.

HGTV's comprehensive parade coverage also will include a special appearance by DIY Network host Matt Blashaw of Professional Grade who will be stationed street-side to conduct celebrity interviews and keep home viewers posted on the status of their favorite float as it travels along the legendary five-and-a-half mile parade route down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California.

Blashaw will host an hour special, Rose Parade Countdown, immediately preceding the parade on Jan 2 at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT. He'll give viewers a backstage pass to the building of the HGTV float, including interviews with some of the 1,200 volunteers who spend approximately 20,000 hours getting the floats ready for the big parade.
