Hollywood Christmas Parade - November 29

After the turkey and stuffing are gone, come to Hollywood to usher in the holidays at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. The parade steps onto Hollywood Boulevard on Sunday, November 29, at 6 p.m. and will include celebrities, floats, marching bands, equestrian units, and -- of course -- Santa Claus. The 2009 Grand Marshall is All My Children's Susan Lucci, pictured at right.

Curbside viewing is free. Grandstand seats are also available for $35 per ticket by calling 866-PARADE1. The parade will begin at the corner of Orange and Hollywood and follow a U-shaped route that heads east down Hollywood Boulevard. Those who can't be there in person can watch the parade locally on KCOP-TV (Channel 13) and across the country. Check the television schedule here.

Coca-Cola, Associated Television International, and the City of Los Angeles are Presenting Sponsors of the 2009 Hollywood Christmas Parade. It's great to be able to bring this free family event to Hollywood and have the opportunity to show off the new revitalized Hollywood to the rest of the country.
