4 injured after high wind destroys booths at Rose Bowl fanfest

It was a frightening scene in Pasadena Wednesday.

The Rose Bowl will host the College Football Playoff game between Oregon and Florida State, but the Tournament of Roses fanfest on the stadium grounds was hit by some unexpected and devastating winds Wednesday afternoon.

According to ABC 7, the Pasadena Fire Department treated four people for injuries after wind struck the fanfest, as seen in the video above. Tents and booths were upended, destroyed and swept away and the wind even managed to pick up a bouncy house.

A wind advisory is in effect for the San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, San Gabriel Valley and Ventura County until Thursday morning. The game will go on as expected, but there is a possibility the wind could play havoc with the annual New Year's Day Rose Bowl Parade if it picks up again in the morning.

Kickoff for the Rose Bowl is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on Thursday and will air on ESPN.
