68th NELA Holiday Parade Set for Sunday

The city's longest running holiday parade will again proceed along North Figueroa Street in Highland Park.

Los Angeles' longest-running Holiday parade will return to Highland Park on Sunday, Dec. 2.

The 68th annual Northeast Los Angeles Holiday parade will be held at 1 p.m. on North Figueroa Street, starting at Avenue 60 and proceeding south toward its finish at Sycamore Grove Park.

This year's theme is "People Helping People," which is a reflection on a year's worth of volunteerism and community engagement across Northeast Los Angeles. 

As in year's past, the 68th Annual Northeast Los Angeles Holiday Parade will feature marching bands, drill teams, dancers, musicians, floats, equestrian units, celebrities and community representatives. Santa Claus will also be participating in the parade procession.

The sponsors of this year's parade include the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce, Council District 1 Representative Ed Reyes,  Council District 14 Representative José Huizar and numerous local businesses and volunteers.

I've attended your parade for the last 5 years; it always leaves fond memories for me. Keep the tradition going & thank you.

Do they think it's worth peoples cars for a parade?!!! People here can't afford paying 200 or 300 to take their car out of the impound.. Its ridiculous .. I'm watching at least 3 cars getting towed.. It's hurting the community here then helping.. The city has the nerve to tow people on Sunday. They should recall all these council members .. They must be really stupid or have to common sense ..

Just wondering? Was signage posted? If signage was posted, people have no excuse.

Lot's of people have problems reading those temporary no parking signs. And, a lot of the time they are not clear on times and dates. Someone needs to be out there explaining no parking for the parade. It does not help the community for people to get towed away.

People who can't read a no parking sign, have no business behind a wheel. And now "Miss No Government" wants someone from the government to come out and explain the signs for the dummies. Brilliant!
