You may not want to start thinking about the holidays but if it’s your favorite time of year, you’ll be excited to hear that Schenectady County announced its theme for this year’s parade.
Schenectady County announced that the theme for the 53rd annual holiday parade is “Dream Big.” The Daily Gazette reports that this is the “first time that participants can opt to perform for 45 seconds at the reviewing stand in front of Proctors Theatre.” The parade is set to kick off at 5 pm on Saturday, November 19.
This year’s parade will be produced by the city and county of Schenectady in partnership with the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corp., the Chamber of Schenectady County and Discover Schenectady.
Those interested in participating in the parade must have their applications submitted or postmarked no later than Oct. 15. Entrance fees are $100 or $75 for nonprofit organizations. Applications are available online at schenectadycounty.com/parade.
