2023 40th Annual Granada Hills Holiday Parade

There is a slight nip in the air as it can only mean that it is time to dust off the flatbed, polish the harness, fluff the pom-poms, copy the sheet music, and start practicing the drills!

On behalf of the dedicated members of the entire Granada Hills Parade Committee, we wish to thank you for your interest and loyal support of the Granada Hills Holiday Parade.

The 40th Annual 2023 Granada Hills Holiday Parade is scheduled for Sunday December 3, 2023, kicking off at 1:30 p.m. RAIN or SHINE!

The John V. Ciccarelli Parade Awards Ceremony with light refreshments will follow immediately after the Granada Hills Holiday Parade at approximately 3:45 p.m. to 5 p.m at the Granada Hills High Charter parking lot near the main campus gate adjacent to the corner of Zelzah Ave. and Kingsbury Street.

NEW REQUIREMENT: Each parade entry is required to have one representative at the post-parade awards ceremony in order to be eligible to return the following year.

This year’s selected 2023 Official Granada Hills Holiday Parade Theme “HOLIDAYS IN CINEMA” is a fun opportunity to rekindle wonderful family viewing memories of many favorite Movies and Television Shows from the past 75 plus years, i.e., “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “The Grinch”, “White Christmas”, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, etc.

It is very important to note FULL FORWARD MOTION of all parade entries MUST be maintained as there is NO STOPPING IN FRONT of Parade Stand Judging location or any cable TV and announcers stands.

The Granada Hills Holiday Parade Committee takes great pride that it has never charged an parade entry fee and derives its financial support from its major sponsors: Granada Hills Community Foundation, Granada Hills Chamber of Commerce, Law Offices of Savin Bursk, 12th District Councilmember John Lee, Patriot Oil Trust Fund, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and local North Valley Neighborhood Councils, Civic Organization, and Business Sponsors.

However, due to escalating costs, we would like to ask for a voluntary tax-deductible donation of $35 payable to the Granada Hills Community Foundation. It would be much appreciated! There is a link to the Foundation’s PayPal account in the sidebar to the left of this post.

Looking forward to seeing you on a very festive and fun-filled Sunday Parade Day on December 3, 2023.
