Montrose Christmas Parade to feature JPL Mars team, 'Star Trek' actor

Going where no man has gone before -- it could be the theme for this year’s Montrose Christmas Parade, with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Mars rover team and original “Star Trek” actor Walter Koenig serving as co-grand marshals.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) and other dignitaries and officials will also be taking part in the parade along Honolulu Avenue, which starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The parade starts at Honolulu Avenue at Rosemont Avenue, and then runs east to Verdugo Road.

The JPL Mars rover team gained international fame after successfully landing a mobile science laboratory on the Red Planet’s surface -- and for certain team member sporting an eye-catching Mohawk during live television coverage of the mission control center.

Koenig gained fame for his role playing Pavel Chekov on the original “Star Trek” television series.
