Coca-Cola will sponsor Santa’s float in to inspire us to carry out small but valuable actions to improve the world. The Wells Fargo Stagecoach is a symbol of American spirit at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. Express trains in the last century unofficially made Wells Fargo “the Modern Santa Claus” by sending presents to good boys and girls. The U.S. Air Force F-22 and F-16 mini-jets will also be part of the parade to benefit children with down syndrome, cancer, autism, diabetes and other disabilities.

You can view the parade in comfort from reserved grandstand seating. Grandstand seats are located on both sides of Hollywood Boulevard at the start of the parade.
