NEWBURGH – The City of Newburgh will be holding its socially distant Holiday parade on Saturday, December 4 starting at 12 noon.
The parade officially begins at the DPW garage and makes its way to South Street, Broadway, Dubois, and travels throughout the East End.
Department vehicles and floats from fire, police, DPW, and the water departments will transport Santa and his friends through various neighborhoods to spread cheer and joy this Holiday season.
This year, Delano Hitch Park and the Newburgh Armory Unity Center along South William Street have been designated as viewing areas so that those who are not on the parade route can observe the parade.
Everyone is asked to practice COVID-19 safety precautions while enjoying the parade. Viewers are asked not to congregate and are encouraged to wear a face mask should they not be able to remain socially distant.
Kids and adults alike will be entertained by floats, family atmosphere, and free hot chocolate. The holiday parade will also make a scheduled stop at Safe Harbors Green.
Since it is not possible to have the parade go through every City street, routes have been adjusted to make sure the city can cover as much ground as possible.
Residents should keep an ear out for sirens and holiday music as the parade makes its way through their neighborhoods.
For your convenience, a map that highlights the overall route that will encompass the entire city is available for download.
