The Montrose Christmas Parade Association takes the safety of our beloved community very seriously. In light of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the Delta Variant, and whether or not we would even be allowed to hold the parade, we felt the best decision was to postpone this year’s parade to 2022. We are as disappointed as you are and we did not take this decision lightly. The primary reason for this decision is the thousands of participants and spectators that deserve to be safe. Without all of your continued participation and support, there is no parade. On December 4th, instead of setting up chairs on Honolulu and watching the festivities pass you by, take some time to walk the parade route, delight in the holiday lights and enjoy a meal at one of the many incredible restaurants in and around Montrose. Thank you for your support of the Montrose Christmas Parade. We wish you, your family and your friends continued health and we can’t wait to see you in 2022! May your holiday season be merry and bright!
The City of Glendale is proud to sponsor the Montrose Christmas Parade! 2021 marks the 44th year of the parade, which will be held on Friday, December 4, 2021 at 6:10 p.m. The Montrose Christmas Parade Association works all year long to plan this much loved community event.
The parade staging starts at La Crescenta Ave. & Honolulu Ave. The parade itself begins at Honolulu Ave. & Rosemont Ave. and runs east to Verdugo Rd. The center of the parade and the entire Montrose area is the intersection of Honolulu Ave. & Ocean View Blvd. Parking is available in the open city parking lots (Glendale Lots 1, 2, and 7 WILL be closed), on the open side streets and within the surrounding neighborhoods. Please plan to arrive early, set up some chairs and a blanket, and get some dinner in one of the great Montrose restaurants. Please remember not to set up your chairs and blankets until the day of the parade, and keep in mind that temporary street closures will impact traffic that day, starting at 3:00 p.m.
