Thank you for your visiting the Seventh District website and official site of the Annual Daisy Avenue Christmas Tree Lane Parade. In partnership with the Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance (WANA) and the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association (BKBIA), City Council District 7 is happy to announce the 67th Annual Daisy Lane Parade: Reimagined. To ensure safety and in order to be in compliance with state and local health guidance, the parade will be a bit different this year: a shortened parade line-up will follow a snaking path through the Wrigley Neighborhood, bringing the parade directly to the residents of Wrigley.
The reimagined parade will be inclusive of the original parade route, and the Daisy Lane Parade decorations will be placed on the Daisy Median. The parade route will be bounded by Wardlow Road and Pacific Coast Highway on the North and South, and Magnolia Avenue and the Los Angeles River on the East and West. The event will take place on Saturday, December 11th, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
The Daisy Lane Parade began in 1953 as the brainchild of Gertrude Whittle, who worked with the Long Beach City Council and Council of Churches to help decorate the grass median on Daisy Avenue with a Christmas Village and nativity scene. Today, the parade is stewarded by the Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance and Maria Norvell, who is fondly known as the Mother of Christmas Tree Lane.
Stay safe, and Go Long Beach!
