Sharing is caring!

The City of Rolling Hills Estates is excited to once again light up the season with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Holiday Parade of Lights on Saturday, December 4, 2021. This annual event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with festive floats and cheerful participants parading through the commercial district along Silver Spur Road to Roxcove Drive to Deep Valley Drive and concluding on Drybank Drive (*note* the route has been slightly modified and will not be going through the Promenade on the Peninsula mall this year).

Serving as this year’s Grand Marshal is LA Dodger Kenley Jansen. Kenley Jansen is a professional baseball player born in the island country of Curaçao. He has been a resident of the Palos Verdes Peninsula since 2017. Kenley made his Major League debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2010. Over his 11-season career with the Dodgers, he totaled 350 Saves and 1,022 Strikeouts. Kenley was named the National League Reliever of the Year (Trevor Hoffman Award) in 2016 and 2017. He is a World Series Champion (2020) and three-time MLB All Star (2016-18). In his free time, Kenley likes to explore PV, play his piano and bass guitar, and spend time with his wife Gianni and four children.

Also featured are retired Rolling Hills Estates Councilmember and Mayor, Judith Mitchell as Hometown Marshal and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce Citizens of the Year, our local First Responders, which include Los Angeles County Fire, Sheriff and EMTs, Palos Verdes Estates Police Department and local hospital representatives from Torrance Memorial, Little Company and Kaiser Permanente.

To showcase the unique character of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, community and civic groups, school and youth organizations, marching bands, drill teams, equestrian units, local businesses, and others are encouraged to participate in the parade. And of course, it wouldn’t be the traditional event if we didn’t have Santa himself joining in on the fun.
Awards are given in various categories: Sweepstakes (Musical), Equestrian Sweepstakes, Best Commercial Float, and Mayor’s Trophy for the best local entry and the Susan Seaman’s Founders Award. Judging is provided by the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association and a professional equestrian judge.
