Road Parade Committee is thrilled to bring a cherished event back to the West Hartford community on Saturday, October 2nd.

The one-hour parade steps off at 10:30AM, at Ringgold Street and ends at South Quaker Lane. Set up a chair anywhere along the parade route. The parade features bands, clowns, dancers, floats, dogs of all shapes and sizes, antique cars, color guards, businesses, civic and cultural organizations and town and state officials.

The Grand Marshals for this year’s parade is a collection of Hometown Heroes that were nominated by the community.

“With all we’ve been through these past 18 months, we wanted to mark the parade’s return with a special salute to those who kept us safe, learning and in business throughout the pandemic,” said Anthony Landino, parade organizer.

The Committee announced the call for nominations in July and since then received many nominations of individuals and organizations whose efforts have simply been remarkable.

“There are many more unsung heroes who quietly did things every day for the betterment of the community despite great obstacles created by COVID. We honor them too in the spirit of 2021 parade. Congratulations to all,” said Landino.

A parade of this magnitude involves a lot of volunteers and sponsors. Without either, the parade would not be possible. A big “thank you” goes out to all of them. The 2021 sponsors are University of Saint Joseph, SynEnergy (Mr. Sparkle Car Wash, Mr. Sparkle Auto Detailing, Valvoline Instant Oil Change), Udolf Properties, Westfarms, Joey’s Pizza Pie, Molloy’s Funeral Home, West Hartford Police Officer’s Association, Open Arms Christian Ministry, West Hartford Travel Basketball, YHB Investment Advisors, Inc., Effie's Place Family Restaurant, Playhouse on Park, Chick-fil-A of West Hartford, West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, NBT Bank, Coursey & Company Public Affairs Communications, GO Media Marketing & Communications Agency, Juniper Home Care, and Caps & Dampers Chimney.

Handicap parking is available at 120 Park Road. Spectator parking is located on Richard, Crosby, Gillette and Ringgold Streets and Oakwood Avenue (south of Crosby Street). There is also ample parking on the arterial streets north of Boulevard between South Highland and South Quaker.
