Hollywood Christmas Parade - November 28

35 of our members represented the club in this year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade (89th year). We are featured on the website in the novelties section, along with The Big Idaho Potato Truck and the 501st Legion (SoCal’s Star Wars Cosplay Organization). It was an amazing event and we’re not sure who had more fun - the crowd of over 20,000 people or our crew. Visit the links below to watch us swarm down Hollywood. The parade will air on December 17 on the CW.
