Impulse, SoCal Dream and the San Francisco Renegades will take to the streets of Hollywood December 1 for the “Blockbuster Hollywood Spectacular” Christmas parade. NBC will tape and package the event into a national primetime special, titled the BLOCKBUSTER Hollywood Christmas Spectacular. The 71st Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade will air nationwide on NBC December 8 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

The parade is open to anyone who wants to participate with the understanding that the unit will go under the name Impulse and everyone must wear an Impulse uniform. Membership in any Impulse Youth Arts Organization corps is not necessary, but those looking to join a corps are coming to the right place!

A performance fee of $50 covers the cost of transportation to and from the parade and a custom made Impulse uniform jacket and pants.
