Northeast L.A. Holiday parade delivers season’s greetings

Cycling Santa/Nathan Solis

The holiday season rolled into Highland Park on Sunday in the form of the 69th Annual Northeast Los Angeles Holiday Parade.  Numerous Santas, riding atop a fire engine and on bikes,  were crowd pleasers, of course. But the parade watchers who lined the 10-block route had plenty else to see, including high school marching bands and drill teams as well as a silver man and Chicken Boy.

“It was a postcard perfect day with spectators lining the full length of the route on both sides, from Avenue 60 to 50,” said Martha Benedict, who along with Nathan Solis snapped and shared photos of the parade.
