The L.A. Nebuta will be featured in the 86th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade on Sunday, Nov. 26. as it winds down the streets of Tinsel Town. Craftsmen traveled from Japan to assemble the float at Aomori Kenjinkai Kaikan in Little Tokyo. The parade starts at 6 p.m. in front the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, preceded by a concert for ticket-holders at 5 p.m. Volunteers are being sought to help push the float, which will be accompanied by haneto dancers and drums.
