This Sunday, December 7, at 1pm, Highland Park will present the 70th annual NELA Hollywood Parade. Come watch local drill teams, marching bands, equestrian units, celebrities, musicians, floats, dancers, and even Santa. Of course there will also be some wacky participants from the neighborhood.
If you are not content to watch, and want to BE the parade, a number of neighborhood groups welcome friendly participants. They will be gathering beforehand between 11am and 12 noon to prepare for the parade. Join the fun with socially conscious Recycled Resources who ask that you wear purple and arrive early to make banners. If you have a furry friend, you and your dog can join the Santa Paws as they pull Santa’s sled.
The parade starts at Avenue 60 and Figueroa and continues south to Sycamore Park. Take the Gold Line to the Highland Park station. Have a couple tacos at Estrella’s too while you’re at it.
