Hard to believe you can find a park this beautiful in the middle of a major city. Great views, hiking, horses, and plenty of room to spread out a picnic blanket.
No trip to LA would be complete without a good look at the iconic Hollywood sign. You can’t hike up to the sign, but a good photo is a must.
Burbank on Parade: City of the FutureApr 26, 2014 11:00 am — Apr 26, 2014 1:00 pm
What started as a parade down Olive Avenue to celebrate the end of World War II has since become a tradition for the city of Burbank, California. In 1945, the Burbank Junior Chamber of Commerce organized a parade that was held in conjunction with their annual spring festival. The annual festival was a favorite tradition in Burbank, which included parties, a pageant, contests, dancing, and other means of celebrating life in Burbank. The festival was a tradition for twelve years.
Each year, the parade has a special theme selected by the Burbank on Parade organizers, and parade marchers build floats and wear outfits that highlight the year’s theme. The parade consists of specially decorated floats, high school and independent marching bands, antique and vintage cars, special Burbank VIPs, Burbank organizations, and a parade Grand Marshal. The parade is held annually each spring.
This years parade theme is “City of the Future.” Once again, we are planning a spectacular parade to celebrate the City of Burbank with all of its fine organizations, businesses, services, schools and citizens. This is your parade, Burbank. We welcome your participation in this grand presentation as a participant, a volunteer, a financial supporter, or a guest at the parade.
