 HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY IS OF PRIMARY CONCERN 

NEW ROCHELLE, NY – [September 18, 2020] – Together the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce and the City of New Rochelle have come to the sad conclusion that the Annual Thanksgiving Parade scheduled for November 21, 2020 must be called off as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to pose a risk at large public events.

This would have been the 57th Annual New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade. We are talking with our sponsors and partners to think of creative experiences that can drive people and business to New Rochelle this holiday season and we look forward to presenting the New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade next year on November 20, 2021.” said Rob Hayes, President of the NR Chamber of Commerce.
