Long Beach Christmas Parade

Who said the coast of Long Beach is the home of vessels only? Although the thought of warm sand along the Southern California coast doesn’t always come to mind when thinking of Winter festivities, here is a reason it should be added to your list.

Saturday, December 5, 2015  6pm

Theme:  Miracle on 2nd Street

The Belmont Shore Christmas Parade will march down East Second Street to the beat of over a dozen local marching bands. Featuring over 100 entries, including floats designed by Long Beach businesses and associations, marching bands, and local personalities and dignitaries. And of course, no Christmas Parade would be complete without an appearance by good ole’ St. Nick!

The parade route is along East Second Street and begins heading east from Livingston Avenue to Bayshore Avenue. Entries return to Livingston Avenue heading west along the north side of East Second Street.

Start time will be at 6:00pm.  East 2nd St. will close to traffic at 5:00pm, at which time spectators may set up chairs and blankets for a front row seat to the parade.

Free parking is available at Marine stadium & the Ocean Ave Beach lots
