Christmas Parades & Events: La Puente, Lancaster, Whittier, Covina, Glendora, Escondido, Pomona, Palmdale, Camarillo, South Gate! December 4 and 11

When I was a kid my father took us to a lot of parades. It was free entertainment and we stopped picking on each other for a while. As kids, we were awestruck by the precision of the bands and how perfect they were. It inspired to join the band in high school, I was hoping to do the same with my children. I contacted the retired band director from Montebello High School, Mr. Covellone and he gave me the list of parades for this Christmas season. Thank you Mr. C!

If you want to inspire your child to join the local high school band or just want to take the kids out of the house for a few hours, then pack up some blankets, stake out your place on the sidewalk, and cheer on the parade!

  1. Every year I miss the Covina parade because I usually participate in a homemade Christmas Ornament exchange that takes place the first Saturday of the month. We started 8 years ago and this is the first year we are not doing it. My daughters will love it, do I want to deal with the crowds? I am sure it will be worth it!
