He walked on the moon and now he's headed down the streets of Hollywood.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin will serve as the Grand Marshall of the upcoming Hollywood Christmas Parade.

The parade benefits the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and will be broadcast to U.S. Service men and women overseas.

Aldrin was the second man to walk on the moon in 1969.

Since then, he's had an asteroid and a moon crater named after him, inspired the iconic Disney character Buzz Lightyear and appeared on Dancing With The Stars.

The parade will take place on Dec. 1.

Reserved-seating grandstand tickets are available for $45, $65 and $85. Discounted tickets are available for groups of 25 or more.
