See you again on December 2nd!


This year's 38th Annual event was held on Saturday, December 6, 2014, at 6 PM. 

The Montrose Christmas Parade Association works all year long to plan this much loved community event.  We are very thankful for the support of our amazing sponsors and volunteers.  We could not put this event on without the donation of time, treasure and talent. 

Looking for something fun for the kids before the parade starts? Check out Montrose! 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 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, 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.
