(AP) - Security will be tighter than ever at the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl in the wake of terrorist attacks at home and abroad.

Federal and local authorities plan to monitor the New Year's Day parade and football game in Pasadena with bomb-sniffing dogs, radiation detectors, plainclothes and uniformed patrols, and more security cameras along the parade route.

Officials say there haven't been any threats so far but Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez urged Tuesday that people remain vigilant and report suspicious activity.

Hundreds of thousands of people usually attend the parade and game. Officials suggest arriving early because extra security means extra time at security checkpoints.

Authorities also have a warning for visitors: Leave the drones at home. They're banned at the parade route and the game.
