Thanksgiving is already in the rear-view mirror. Did you eat all the stuffing you could? It's time to deck the halls, bow down to our consumerist gods and get stuck in traffic as the 85th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade shuts down the heart of Hollywood. On a day most of us will be driving back into to town, no less.The festivities start at 5 p.m. with a pre-parade concert, and the parade itself starts at 6 p.m., beginning at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Orange Dr. and continuing east down Hollywood until it hits Vine Street. At Vine, the parade heads south for two blocks until it hits Sunset Boulevard, where the parade will go back west down Sunset until it hits Orange Drive again.

This year's grand marshall of the parade is the one and only Olivia Newton-John, and hosts are Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams. If you're going, it's definitely advised that you #GoMetro.

Here's what streets will be closed for the parade and the staging area—this also includes 101 freeway off-ramps! Plan accordingly!

Saturday at midnight
- Hollywood Boulevard between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive
- Orange Drive between Hawthorn Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard
