65th Annual Candy Cane Parade: A Busy Weekend Ahead In The City of Hollywood

City of Hollywood

December 1, 2021

The 65th Annual Candy Cane Parade along the world-famous Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is taking place on Saturday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. The parade will begin at Missouri Street and will head south along the Broadwalk, past the parade emcee positioned at the Hollywood Beach Theatre at Johnson Street, to Harrison Street.

Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for top-notch viewing of the parade floats, marching bands and creative displays from civic, non-profit and children’s groups, or reserve a table at one of the many seaside restaurants.

Due to the high demand for parking on the barrier island, beginning at 5:00 p.m., parade goers are encouraged to park in one of the downtown parking garages and take the free shuttle to the beach. The downtown parking garages are located at 19th Avenue at Polk Street and 20th Avenue at Van Buren Street. Shuttles will circulate non-stop throughout the evening with the last shuttle leaving the beach at 10:00 p.m. Downtown parking rates apply. In light of the recent deadly events in Waukesha, Wisconsin, modified security protocols will be in place for the duration of the event. Participant patience is appreciated.

Parade participants are being asked to “Help Keep Hollywood Beautiful” by handing out candy to parade goers, rather than throwing it from floats. This will help reduce waste on the Broadwalk and sandy beach. Parade attendees are encouraged to be #SeenBeingGreen by bringing their reusable water bottles.

Hollywood’s signature holiday event, the Candy Cane Parade is presented in partnership with the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts.

Hollywood ArtsPark Experience: The Wood Brothers

The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency and The Rhythm Foundation present the latest ArtsPark Experience - The Wood Brothers this Sunday (Sunday, December 5, 6:30 - 10:00 p.m.) at the ArtsPark at Young Circle in downtown Hollywood.

Dubbed "masters of soulful folk" by Paste, The Wood Brothers formed after brothers Chris and Oliver Wood pursued separate musical careers for 15 years. Chris already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin &Wood, while Oliver toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. With drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it's become quite clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.

Admission is free. The ArtsPark Amphitheater is located at 1 Young Circle in downtown Hollywood. This venue is plastic and foam-free. Single-use plastic bottles, bags and foam containers items are prohibited.
