Santa Claus Lane Parade in 1960

Santa Claus Lane Parade 1960!

Here is vintage footage of the Santa Claus Lane parade in 1960.  You will see Barbara Billingsley, Tony Dow and me at 12:12 in the video.  Hugh Beaumont was in Minnesota at his property where he grew Christmas trees.  He brought them out to Los Angeles and sold them at his Christmas tree lot.

This brings back lots of memories!  Who else in the parade do you remember?

This year I am in the Hollywood Christmas Parade and it is a great holiday celebration.  The parade is an American tradition and this is the 81st year.  I have been in the parade many times.  My dear friends Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada are the hosts of the parade and Joe Mantegna is the Grand Marshal.  Many celebrities, bands, floats and giant balloons are on hand to  entertain everyone.  And, of course Santa Claus makes a special appearance and I was able to get a picture with him!
