Come be a part of the Park Road Parade as it marks its 19th anniversary of fun and community spirit October 6.
The parade steps off from Ringgold Street and continues to South Quaker Lane.
Each year the parade draws over 7,000 people to Park Road neighborhood and is televised on West Hartford Community TV (Comcast Channel 5). Last year over 90 contingents marched the one-half mile route. The parade duration is about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
The parade features bands, clowns, dancers, floats, antique cars, dogs of all shapes and sizes, sports mascots, color guards, businesses, civic and cultural organizations and town officials. Anything goes in this parade, from simple banners with marchers sporting the identical T-shirt, to elaborate costumes, dance numbers and floats.
