Marie Osmond lit up the crowd lining Hollywood Boulevard on Sunday night. The Grand Marshal of the Hollywood Christmas Parade definitely was the actress who people were excited to see. Along with Santa Claus the entertainer got roaring applause as she rolled down the parade route for the thousands watching.
An annual holiday tradition in Hollywood, the locals gather to see a unique type of parade. One that includes bands, floats and lots of celebrities, it is a family affair that needs a camera as who rolls by isn’t always known.
One of the first famous people to roll by was Marie Osmond. The entertainer, dressed in white, was sitting in the back of a convertible car with a name placard draping the side of the car. Sharing the moment she yelled out holiday greetings to the kids and waved at the adults as everyone took part in the beginning of the holiday season.
Kicking off the holidays in Hollywood was the perfect way to start the season. Not only was it in the upper 60’s it was a chance for everyone to come together for an evening gushing with holiday spirit.
