Lakers Vs. The Golden State Warriors
1111 S. Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015
Under the tutelage of young coach Luke Walton, the Los Angeles Lakers have become one of the NBA’s most talked about teams. Adding to that excitement is that fact that the record setting Golden State Warriors are rolling through town and you have a blockbuster of a basketball game for your holiday weekend at Staples Center. A potent combination of young and vigor is heavy with both teams and that kind of chemistry will equate to some highlight reel material when these two teams step on the court to face each other. The Lakers are, at least for now, a hot ticket again. Here is your chance to see why.
The Queen Mary
1126 Queens Hwy
Long Beach, CA 90802
The Queen Mary in Long Beach has again transformed into a snow-covered playground for the annual Chill attraction. This year, organizers have adopted an Alice In Winterland theme that includes components like the Hall of Doors, the White Rabbit’s Kitchen, Mad Hatter’s Work Shop, the infamous Tea Party, a real Hedge Maze and much more. This additional 14,000 square foot imprint coincides with the all of the frosty fun of the bunny slopes and seaside ice-skating that Chill has become anticipated for. Guests can even head inside the ship to experience the 4-D presentation of the Polar Express as a way to warm up and reenergize before heading back out to play in the snow.
Hollywood Christmas Parade
Marking the 85th year of the holiday tradition, the Hollywood Christmas parade rolls through Tinseltown to punctuate the Thanksgiving weekend and officially begin the Christmas season. Welcoming Grand Marshall Olivia Newtown John, the mega-floats, inflatables, marching bands, and equestrian units of the parade will ensure quite the spectacle on Hollywood boulevard. In line with the likes of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the holiday event is always full of pageantry and beautiful presentations. With plenty of celebrity fanfare and live music from the likes of Kenny G, WAR, and a holiday supergroup featuring members of Blondie, The Romantics, The Cars, and Chesterfield Kings, this historic Sunday night is one not to be missed.
