Every year the residents of New Hartford break out their lawn chairs and line Pearl Street to enjoy the annual Memorial Day parade. Fire Departments from all over the county, bands, and veterans march with pride and it's truly a sight to see! The community support is really remarkable.

La Banda Rossa

I'm sure you've seen this popular band in many community parades and at many events. The Red Band as it translates from Italian, has been around for many years and celebrates Italian culture.

This pest control company had a funny float. One guy was running around catching the big pests with a huge net!

The Ziyara Shriners do so much for this community and no doubt their biggest fund raising efforts go towards the Children's Hospital. They also have a band and a band of clowns that always entertain!

This Fife & Drum Corps. out of Camden, NY took us back to Revolutionary War times with their wonderful music.
