With December fast approaching, it means that it is time to start getting into the Holiday spirit. If you will be staying in one of the hotels in Sunset Hollywood this year, one of the best ways to participate in the Christmas cheer is to attend the annual Hollywood Christmas Parade! This year, the parade will be on November 27th. This annual event is a perfect way to close out November and to ring in the Christmas spirit. Mark your calendars for this exciting event today!
For the 85th anniversary of the Hollywood Christmas Parade, the Grand Marshal will be Olivia Newton-John, one of the stars from the hit movie Grease. Returning back for a second year of hosting the parade will be Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams. This year, there will also be special co-hosts as well! This year, the co-hosts will be Elizabeth Stanton, from “Elizabeth Stanton’s Great Big World” and Garrett Clayton from the Disney Channel original, “Teen Beach Movie” and the ABC show “The Fosters”. At the parade, enjoy talented marching bands, horses, and Christmas themed parade balloons! Every year, there are also surprise celebrity guests and of course a visit from Old St. Nick himself! Some of the celebrities that are currently scheduled to attend the parade this year include Kate Linder and Caryn Grimes from The Young and the Restless and Martha Madison, Marci Miller, Deidre Hall and Camila Banus from Days of Our Lives.
The parade route will begin at Hollywood Blvd and Orange Drive, in front of the Chinese Theater. It will continue down Hollywood Blvd until it reaches Vine St. At Vine it will make a U-Turn and continue back up Sunset Blvd where it will end at Orange Dr. For the best views of the parade, consider purchasing grandstand tickets.
