Be IN the Hollywood Christmas Parade as a Balloon Wrangler + Stay at the Hollywood Hotel #WeekendGetaway

I know it’s a bit soon to be talking Christmas– (Ok, It’s a LOT soon)– but what if you suffer from that crazy malady, Holiday Doldrums? You don’t have any Christmas spirit. The “joyful” aspect seems to be minus the “joy” but a lot of “full” because you have lots to do?
I would love to tell you about an event + getaway that would turn that woeful “joy + full” into a “joyful” experience– that would put you into the Hollywood Christmas Parade!



Kick off the holiday season with the most wonderful travel package of the year. This year, the team at Hollywood Hotel, The Hotel of Hollywood®, is inviting its guests to walk with the hotel’s team along the world’s longest red carpet – 3.5 miles along Hollywood Blvd., Sunset Blvd. and Vine – in the 84th annual Hollywood Christmas parade on Sunday, November 29, 2015. This year, Hollywood Hotel’s group will be “wrangling” a giant elf and candy canes balloon characters.

Featuring Toys for Tots, this year’s Grand Marshals are Penn and Teller and guest co-hosts include Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams. The celebration will be kicked off in style with concerts on two stages along the parade route featuring performances that range from beloved classics to modern hit makers. Past musical guests have included Billy Ray Cyrus, Goo Goo Dolls, Stevie Wonder, LeAnn Rimes, and many more top names in music. Check out more details at

About Hollywood Hotel
The original Hollywood Hotel was established in 1903 on Hollywood Boulevard, owned by H.J. Whitley, the tycoon credited with establishing Hollywood. It was known as “the” Hollywood hotel as the city began to grow with the advent of the silent film era. Rudolph Valentino, who lived in room 264; met and married his first wife, Jean Acker, there, and spent their honeymoon in his room. In 1964 Hollywood Hotel, was reestablished on Vermont Avenue and since then has become an icon in its own right. International athletes and dignitaries have stayed, to American celebrities such as Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Aidan Quinn, Jessica Biel, to John Krasinski and BJ Novak and Jason Rittter, all of whom have attended or performed at the hotel’s comedy club open mic nights.

The 130-room Hollywood Hotel is “where all the action begins in Hollywood.” Located in the center of the entertainment capital, the vibe of this intimate hotel is a comfortable, cosmopolitan meets vintage Hollywood glamour and steps away from shopping, world-class dining and cutting edge culture.

Hollywood Hotel is one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the city and offers incredible value in a central location. Guests start their day with a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, can later bask by the pool surrounded by gardens and sip a cocktail in the stylish outdoor bar and lounge after a day of sightseeing or shopping. For more information or reservations contact 1-800-800-9733; 323-315-1800 , or visit or on Facebook. The hotel is located at 1160 Vermont Ave., Hollywood, CA 90029.
