TESTIMONIALS

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

“Great seats. Very easy to get to. Parking close by. The only way to see a parade. My favorite moment: Seeing everything being filmed.”
-Hidesmedina

INTERESTING & MAGICAL

“It’s fun, sometimes silly, interesting and magical. Music, equestrians, balloons, star cars, costumed characters and marching bands! It really makes me feel the holiday spirit. It’s a tradition and a great way to ring in the holidays. Get a seat, sit back, hug your partner and relax. My only other recommendation is layer!”  -ParadeLady

HOLIDAY TWINKLE

“We purchased bleacher seats. Convenient and easy access. Bring a blanket to sit on. It helps take the winter chill off.”  -LizGates1

UNFORGETTABLE CONCERTS

“This was our first Hollywood Christmas Parade. The concerts were unexpected and added to a memorable experience. My daughters kept smiling and had so much fun. I was the hero for the day for planning this day.”  -BruinFan1
