Annual New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade
The City of New Rochelle hosts its 58th annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, featuring bands, assorted marchers, and giant balloons. The eight giant parade balloons this year include Mighty Mouse, Elmo, Peppa Pig, Popeye and My Little Pony Pinky Pie as well as floats, marching bands, vintage cars, the PAW Patrol, clowns, fire trucks, super heroes, and more. The parade is reportedly the largest parade in New York outside of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC.
The 2022 Parade route will be along North Avenue – beginning at North Ave & Eastchester Road and ending at North Ave & Bonnefoy Place.
