If you can't make it to downtown Rochester for the 61st annual Hometown Christmas Parade, you can watch it live as it happens on Rochester Patch.
Patch has partnered with the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce to livestream the Christmas parade through Rochester Hills and Rochester.
Our live coverage will begin around 2:15 p.m., when the parade reaches downtown Rochester.
(For all of the details about the parade, read Your Guide to the Hometown Christmas Parade.)
