Hollywood Walk of Fame Upcoming Ceremonies

We often say celebrity sightings in Hollywood and Beverly Hills can be very hit and miss.  Some may see a dozen A-listers within 5 hours of being in our city, while others could be here a week and not see a single celeb.  A guaranteed celebrity sighting is always at the Hollywood Walk of Fame upcoming ceremonies.  Not only do you get the recipient of this honor, but you also get the many movie and TV stars showing up to honor the Walk of Fame recipient. Here’s a HUGE upcoming ceremony: Thursday, January 19th, 2017 Producer/ Directer Brett Ratner will receive the 2,599th star on the Walk of Fame, at 1130AM in the Motion Pictures category at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard

Visitors Guide to Rose Bowl Game and Parade

If coming to Los Angeles, one must have a visitors guide to the Rose Bowl Game and Parade happening in Pasadena.  This year, both will take place on Monday, January 2nd, 2017, as opposed to the typical New Years Day.  That’s because the Tournament of Roses that puts on both events has a “never on a Sunday” tradition dating back to 1893.  This was done to assure that horses hitched outside churches wouldn’t be spooked during events.  There’s no more horses (other than those in the parade itself), but the tradition continues. There will still be plenty of celebrating on New Years Eve along Colorado Boulevard with visitors and parade watchers grabbing the best seats along the route for the parade
