The Hollywood Christmas Parade marks its 88th year in 2019 and (as usual) it's quite the extravaganza. Happening on December 1 and wending its way from Hollywood Boulevard at Orange (right at the TCL Chinese Theatre) all the way to Vine, down to Sunset and west back to Orange. The live music begins in front of Hollywood & Highland at 5 p.m., with the parade following from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mario Lopez and his family serve as this year's grand marshals, along with numerous celebrities also appearing throughout the parade, along with 13 marching bands, huge floating character balloons, floats and much more. And of course, no Christmas parade would be complete with Santa Claus! The whole extravaganza airs on the CW TV network on December 13.
