Crowds expected on parade route

About 30,000 people are expected to flock to Olive Avenue on Saturday for the 32nd annual Burbank on Parade, with this year’s theme “Let’s Go to the Movies!”

Dancers, clowns, floats, marching bands and equestrian entries, along with popular characters Bob's Big Boy and Ronald McDonald, are slated to walk, glide and trot down Olive from Keystone to Lomita streets starting at 11 a.m.

“So many citizens wait all year long to share this special day with us, and we hope to live up to those expectations with this year's production,” said Joanne Miller, parade chairwoman, in a statement.

Radio host Tim Conway Jr. is this year’s grand marshal, and actor Daniel Roebuck and KNBC-TV reporter Conan Nolan are also slated to take part.

Four food trucks — Mighty Boba Truck, Let’s Roll It, Ooh La La Crepes and Camabalache’s Gourmet — will be parked behind the Joslyn Adult Center, located at 1301 W. Olive Ave.

In the same spot, Jonathan Goldman and The Big Band Swing Express will perform after appearing in the parade.
