Santa Claus is coming to Hollywood and bringing the Christmas spirit to town with him.
The Hollywood Christmas Parade is slated to return to the streets of Hollywood on November 28th at 6 p.m. It is the 89th edition of the traditional Hollywood Christmas Parade. The parade was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The parade is slated to begin on Hollywood Boulevard on Orange Street and will be hosted by Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams with special co-host Elizabeth Stanton.
“Since 1928, the live Hollywood Christmas Parade has been a popular and cherished annual Christmas tradition that Angelenos has enjoyed and enjoyed by millions who watch the parade televised nationally on the CW Network and internationally on the Armed Forces Network around the world,” said McKenzie , Co-host and producer of the Hollywood Christmas Parade. “The only exceptions were during World War II from 1942 to 1944 when the parade was not presented and of course last year in 2020 when the parade was not presented due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.”
The Hollywood Christmas Parade is presented in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rules and regulations in force at the time of the parade. Visitors can watch for free along the parade route and are asked to wear masks.
The Grand Marshal for the parade will be announced at a later date.
There will be no live concert in the streets leading up to the parade and no grandstand tickets will be sold for the parade.
