Thank you for visiting the Seventh District website and official site of the 56th Annual Daisy Lane Parade, a unique community event sponsored by the City of Long Beach.
Daisy Christmas Tree Lane Parade Information
The fun starts Saturday, December 12th, 5:00pm
Daisy Avenue, from Hill Street to Pacific Coast Highway
The parade began in 1953 as the brainchild of Gertrude Whittle. Ms. Whittle was able to persuade the Long Beach City Council and Council of Churches to help decorate the grass median on Daisy Avenue, between Pacific Coast Highway and Willow Street, with a Christmas Village and nativity scene. Soon after, many area residents began decorating their homes and Daisy Lane as we now know it, was born! The event grew to include more displays, entertainment and a parade.
These days, the parade not only receives support from the City of Long Beach, but also from its numerous sponsors and community members.
Groups wishing to participate in the parade may fill out the following participation packet and return to the 7th Council District office by Thursday, November 19th.
You may also volunteer, by emailing email@example.com or by calling (562) 570-6139.
