This annual parade, celebrating the 54th year with the theme ‘Hollywood at the Harbor,’ marks the start of the Holiday Season here in the harbor. Jaina Lee Ortiz, co-star of Fox 11’s new hit series ‘Rosewood’ will lead this year’s parade as Grand Marshal. The Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson, the official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles along with vessels of all shapes and sizes will participate including powerboats, sailboats and harbor working craft.
