The Pride of Eastside Marching Band Performs in 85th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade
Thousands of people lined the streets, November 27 to watch the 85th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade in Hollywood, California, and little did they know they would be in for such a spectacular treat. Character balloons, equestrian units, holiday floats, and celebrities as far as the eye could see—Larry King, Robert Wagner, Erik Estrada, Lou Ferrigno, Deidre Hall, Bill Engval, Jack Scalia, Olivia Newton-John, The Pride of Eastside (TPOE) Marching Band, and many, many, more dazzled the crowds and officially kicked off the Christmas season in Tinsel Town!
