SPOTLIGHT ON HOLLYWOOD
58th Annual Candy Cane Parade Saturday
• Festive floats, marching bands and some creative displays all come together
HOLLYWOOD - Celebrating its 58th year, The Candy Cane Parade returns to the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk on Saturday, December 7, 2013. The Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts is proud to present this year’s parade theme, “Destination Illumination,” and it will surely light up the Broadwalk with holiday colors, lights and festivities.
The parade begins at 7 p.m. on the Broadwalk at Scott Street and heads south to Harrison Street. Festive floats, marching bands and creative displays from civic, non-profit and children’s groups all come together with the City to put on this hometown holiday celebration.
FREE BLEACHER SEATING
Complimentary bleacher seating will be set up on the sand along the parade route from Scott Street to Tyler Street with parade announcers stationed across from Charnow Park at Garfield Street and at the Hollywood Beach Theatre at Johnson Street. Spectators also may bring a blanket or lawn chair for top-notch viewing along the parade route or reserve a table at one of the many seaside restaurants for a complete beachfront experience.
FREE PATRON SHUTTLES
To ease traffic, the City encourages parade-goers to park in one of the downtown parking garages and take the free patron shuttles to the beach from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The parking garages are located at 19th Avenue at Polk Street and 20th Avenue at Van Buren Street. Prevailing downtown parking rates apply.
THE HOLLYWOOD TROLLEY
The Hollywood Trolley will travel from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. with convenient stops downtown and along the beach for $1 per person, per trip.
The Candy Cane Parade is presented in partnership with the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency.
