The parade features the Marine Toys for Tots program, which is essential in providing gifts to less fortunate children everywhere. .
A true Hollywood yearly tradition, the parade attracts more than one million in attendance each year, with larger than life inflatable character balloons, award-winning bands, colorful equestrians, ornate floats, popular characters/novelties, celebrity-filled cars and, of course, Santa Claus making the much heralded trek down the over three mile parade route.
