The Whittier Uptown Association invites you and your family to our

65th Annual Uptown Whittier Christmas Parade

Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 10am to 12noon.

This year’s theme is “Christmas Around the World”

 

Our parade attracts over 15,000 visitors from Whittier and surrounding communities. Many attend to see their friends and family walk though this historic event. Entries include marching bands, vintage autos, floats, dance troupes, drill teams and more. Santa Clause always makes his appearance at the end of the event.

We will be announcing our Grand and Celebrity Grand Marshalls shortly along with special guest.

Bands will not be judged this year. However, float entries will be judged based on our theme, originality and creativity. Certificates for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded after the parade.

Plan on arriving as early as early as possible. Families arrive as early as 7am to select their favorite spot. Many restaurants will be open early in the morning to accommodate the crowds. Parade route starts at Hadley St and Greenleaf Ave and ends at Mar Vista St and Washington Ave, near the Whittier Community Center.
