Reminder: Weekend Street Closures for Hollywood Christmas Parade
Just in case your turkey-mashed potato-pumpkin pie haze yesterday kept you from digesting info about this weekend's street closures in Hollywood this weekend, we offer you this little reminder. Sunday evening brings the Hollywood Christmas Parade to the streets of Tinseltown, and in addition to Grand Marshal Susan Lucci leading a plethora of floats, marching bands, C-list celebs and Santa Claus himself in a U-shaped pattern past crowds of onlookers, this whole weekend is awash in parking restrictions and street closures that might make navigating that part of town difficult.
Today you've just got Hollywood Blvd. from Orange to Highland Ave and Orange from Hollywood Blvd. South to the alley north of Hawthorne to contend with, but tomorrow's list is extensive, and includes the Northbound & Southbound off ramps to Cahuenga Blvd. and Highland Ave. on the 101 being closed from 3-10 p.m. PS The DOT says they're very serious about towing. Don't let it happen to you!
