2014 seems like it just started, but it’s about that time of year again where everyone gathers together for the Granada Hills Holiday Parade. This year will be our 31st Annual Parade, and our theme is “Holidays Around The World.” We will be celebrating this year with parade entries showcasing all different cultural ways of celebrating the good ol’ holidays.
Our Grand Marshal this year is Ken Kercheval, one of the stars of the hit TV show Dallas and many other notable works. Kercheval is most recognized for his role in “Dallas” as Cliff Barnes, the rival of oil mogul J.R. Ewing in the 1980’s version of the show, and is also reprising his role in it’s 2012 revival

This years Granada Hills Holiday Parade also has further significance as it will be falling on December 7th, the 73’d anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, a day our great nation will never forget. We will have members of the VFW participating in the parade, so we will not only be celebrating the Holidays, we will also be acknowledging the soldiers of our country, many of whom come from Granada Hills itself.
