The throwing of corn tortillas with shaving cream is a constant New Year’s Eve tradition along the Rose Parade route, and it’s what keeps Manuel Estrada, 32, coming back.
On Monday night around 8:30 p.m., Estrada, his wife and their son stood on the edge of the road, rocketing tortillas filled with shaving cream at cars with windows down. At one point, Estrada took a jump shot, launching a tortilla into a car. “You gotta get creative,” he said.
“Oh, here comes one,” Estrada said, eyeing an oncoming car.
