After a three year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Echo Park Community Parade Committee is proud to announce the return of the historic annual event, now in its 53rd year, on Saturday, December 9, 2023 along Sunset Boulevard between Vin Scully Avenue and Park Avenue.
All are invited to take a place along the parade route starting at 11:00 am to enjoy the revelry, cheer, community spirit and wondrous merriment that makes the annual Echo Park parade a must-see cultural event by thousands of Angelenos and visitors for over 50 years. Parade floats and entries will include classic cars, spectacular performances by community groups, and, of course, Santa and his elves. The main performance location at Echo Park and Sunset Boulevard will feature live entertainment, remarks by local elected officials and other special guests.
As is also the tradition with this parade, elected officials and leaders representing this area have been invited to wish the community a happy holiday season, and there will, of course, be your favorite holiday mascot – Santa Claus!
