Abdul’s spirit of compassion aligns perfectly with the Hollywood Christmas Parade, a cherished tradition that has been spreading holiday cheer and fostering community spirit for an incredible 91 years. Just as Abdul extends her philanthropic hand to organizations like Wigs & Wishes, Children’s Hospital LA, No Kid Hungry, American Humane Association, and Dancers Against Cancer, the Hollywood Christmas Parade proudly supports causes like Marine Toys for Tots, ensuring that underprivileged children experience the joy of the holiday season.

Kickstarting this year’s festivities will be none other than American war hero Colonel Paris D. Davis, a recent recipient of the prestigious Medal of Honor. As Grand Marshal, he will lead the parade in a grand procession of Hollywood celebrities, vintage movie cars, award-winning bands, larger-than-life character balloons, and vibrant floats.

The Hollywood Christmas Parade, presented by Associated Television International in partnership with The City of Los Angeles, will air in primetime on The CW on December 15, 2023. Join veteran hosts Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain, and Montel Williams, along with Special Co-Host Elizabeth Stanton, as they bring the magic of the parade into your homes.
