Santa Claus is coming to Hollywood

EG at HW Christmas Parade
Originally uploaded by CD-13
One of Hollywood’s favorite traditions -- the annual holiday parade -- will once again march down Hollywood Boulevard this November. After an announcement earlier this year that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce would no longer produce the annual parade, Councilmember Tom LaBonge and I worked to revive the celebration for a 76th year. The Hollywood Santa Parade will honor the pageantry and festive spirit of the Hollywood Christmas Parade and will feature Mary J. Blige, the cast of Disney’s High School Musical, and American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin. Hope to see you on November 25!
