The New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade is back! Following a regrettable one-year hiatus, the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with the New Rochelle Department of Parks & Recreation to sponsor the returning parade on Saturday, November 20th. Financial sponsorship is once again generously provided by Charles & John Valenti.

The fun kicks off on North Avenue at Eastchester Road at 10:00am. The route will run down North Avenue, make a right turn on Main Street and then conclude at Maple Avenue.

Also returning that same morning from 8:00am to 9:30am is the annual Pancake Breakfast, sponsored by the New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence. The Pancake Breakfast is held in the cafeteria of the new wing of New Rochelle High School. The cost for a hearty breakfast, served up by school administrators, board members and volunteers, is $5 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. For more information call 914-576-4657. The Pancake Breakfast is a perfect way to fuel up before the parade and is within easy walking distance of the parade’s starting point.
