The parade’s telecast will be hosted by Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain and Montel Williams, with special co-hosts Elizabeth Stanton and Garrett Clayton. The event will also include live musical performances to be announced at a later date. Taped for network television, the celebration is presented and produced by Associated Television International.

The parade attracts more than one million in attendance each year, with larger-than-life inflatable character balloons and celebrity-filled cars making the much-heralded trek down the over three-mile parade route.
