2008 Hollywood Holiday will feature Demi Lovato

Every year, Hollywood has played a role in ushering in the holiday season on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. This year, we are very excited to bring family entertainment to the boulevard in a fresh, exciting format.

The 2008 Hollywood Holiday will include Winterfest, an all-day street festival that will include a free Radio Disney performance by Hollywood Records recording artist and Disney Channel actress Demi Lovato. Ms. Lovato stars with the Jonas Brothers in Disney’s Camp Rock and her album Don’t Forget debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart when it was released on Hollywood Records in September 2008. The City of Los Angeles, Lift Up America, and the Hollywood Youth Foundation are presenting sponsors of Winterfest, which will include a special “VIP” area for more than 1,000 children who participate in Los Angeles-area programs for underprivileged youth.

At 5 p.m., the Hollywood Santa Parade will begin at the corner of Hollywood and Highland and will feature marching bands from across the country, equestrian units, floats, and Santa Claus. Grandstand seats are available for $35 and discounts are available for groups of 25 or more. Those seeking more information about tickets or sponsorship opportunities, may call 1-866-PARADE1 or visit the website here.

Participants are encouraged to GoMetro to Winterfest and the Hollywood Santa Parade and exit at one of the convenient Hollywood stations. For Metro station information and schedules, please click here.

Hollywood Holiday will be a great way to start the holiday season. See you on November 30!
