HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Danny Trejo brings his unique touch to the Hollywood Christmas Parade. He was announced Thursday as Grand Marshal of the parade, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.
An actor, author, and restaurateur, Trejo has appeared in dozens of films and television shows, including Desperado, Spy Kids, Machete, Sons of Anarchy, and The Book of Boba Fett. He is also a New York Times bestselling author of Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood.
“Wow! I’m honored to represent Los Angeles. As a kid growing up in the San Fernando Valley, I never thought I would be the Grand Marshal of the Hollywood Christmas Parade,” Trejo said in a release. “Then, as now, I still love cruising the streets of Hollywood. What an incredible honor.”
The Hollywood Christmas Parade supports the Marine Toys for Tots campaign, a partnership celebrating its 75th anniversary.
“We are very excited to be partnering with the Hollywood Christmas Parade for our 75th anniversary because it is right here in Los Angeles where we started our operations years ago. And today, we’re proud to continue our mission to bring much-needed holiday gifts and cheer to those less fortunate,” said Lt. Gen. James B. Laster, President and CEO of Marine Toys for Tots.
The Hollywood Christmas Parade will be hosted by Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams, with special co-host Elizabeth Stanton. It features Hollywood celebrities and movie cars, award-winning bands from across the country, equestrian groups, larger-than-life balloons, colorful floats and humorous special acts.
The parade, presented by Associated Television International and the City of Los Angeles and scheduled for November 27 at 6:00 p.m., culminates with the appearance of Santa and his reindeer to usher in the holiday season.
