The 85th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade will premiere as a two-hour special on Friday, December 16th starting at 8:00 pm ET on The CW Network.
Whether you celebrate the holidays someplace where it snows, on the beach, or in sunny California, most would agree that it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year. Add in Mickey Mouse and Olivia Newton-John? Well then it really is the happiest season of all.
Though not as famous as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, the Hollywood Christmas Parade boasts a long history and a big audience— over one million attendees come to see the parade live and another million American servicemen and women worldwide view the production on American Forces Network television.
In addition to the famous grand marshall, the parade will feature inflatable character balloons, celebrity-filled cars, and live musical performances.
The stars of soap operas Days of Our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and The Beautiful, as well as some of the stars of ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat and Black-ish will be in attendance along with Keesha Sharp, who was featured in the Emmy nominated The People vs. O.J. Simpson this year.
