See you again on December 2nd!


This year's 32nd Annual event will be held on December 6, 2008, at 6 PM. 

We will have a great mix of local entries, regional school bands, celebrities, dignitaries and of course Santa Claus in his famous Glendale P.D. Helicopter!  You have to see that to believe it.  Make your plans now and meet your friends on Honolulu for another fun parade.  

We invite you to come early …do some shopping, enjoy one of our fine restaurants, and get a good spot on the parade route!  The parade starts at Honolulu Ave. and Rosemont Ave. and runs east towards Verdugo Rd.  Parking is available in the open city parking lots, 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 our great Montrose restaurants. 

Please join us in thanking the City of Glendale, the Montrose Chamber of Commerce and the Montrose Shopping Park Association for their generous support of this event.  

Take a look at all the supporters that make this amazing community event possible and remember to thank them for caring about our community!   See our supporters.
