The Hollywood Christmas Parade celebrates its 90th anniversary on Sunday with live bands, colorful floats and of course the star of the evening: Santa Claus and his reindeer.
This year’s event, beginning at 6:00 p.m., will feature actor Danny Trejo as the Grand Marshal, along with a host of other celebrities, musical performances and a dozen marching bands.
The 3.2-mile parade route runs from Hollywood Boulevard at Orange Drive before heading east on Hollywood Boulevard to Vine Street, then down Vine to Sunset Boulevard before returning west on Sunset and back to Orange Drive .
The parade has been held almost every year since its inception in 1928. The parade was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was not held before that from 1942-1944 due to World War II.
The parade will be taped for a two-hour special that will air December 16 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the CW network and will be hosted by Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams, with Elizabeth Stanton serving as special co-host .
