Map of the Day: Hollywood Winterfest & Santa Parade
View larger image of map
It's no Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, but Los Angeles' Winterfest and Santa Parade takes place tomorrow in Hollywood.
Winterfest, which goes from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Hollywood at Highland, is a family event with games, food, and a stage where event-goers can watch performances by Radio Disney favorites, including Demi Lovato. Then at 5 p.m., the Hollywood Santa Parade will begin at the corner of Hollywood and Highland.
Of course, all this makes for traffic backups and parking hell. If you're planning on going to Hollywood tonight or tomorrow, go Metro (late-night Red Line service to 3 a.m. still in effect) and take note of the logistics information below:
