Discover Los Angeles

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and Los Angeles is a perfect place to celebrate. Join celebrities and local bands as they parade along Hollywood Boulevard during the Hollywood Christmas Parade taking place Thanksgiving Weekend. The Skirball Cultural Center is the site of the annual Hanukkah Family Festival where visitors of all faiths can learn more about the traditions that make up Hanukkah. Olvera Street, the site where the City of Los Angeles was founded, is the annual site of the Las Posadas procession, which reenacts the journey of Mary and Joseph as they searched for shelter in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve. And be sure to celebrate Grinchmas with everyone’s favorite Grinch when Whoville comes to Universal Studios Hollywood.
