The New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce will present its 58th. Annual Parade 2022
The New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the City of New Rochelle, is pleased to announce the 58th Annual Thanksgiving Parade taking place on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at 10 a.m. m.
The 2022 Parade route will be along North Avenue, starting at Eastchester Road and ending at Bonnefoy Place.
The theme of this year’s parade is “Celebrating a Century of Service,” which is a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the New Rochelle Chamber and its long history of serving this important Westchester County city.
The NR Chamber of Commerce is also proud to announce that the Grand Marshals for the 2022 Thanksgiving Parade are retiring City Manager Chuck Strome and recently retired former Parks and Recreation Commissioner Bill Zimmermann.
As their biographies below indicate, both Grand Marshals have dedicated many years to the city of New Rochelle, and are the ideal choice to represent the Parade’s theme “Celebrating a Century of Service”.
“The New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade is a tradition of the Chamber and the City of New Rochelle. This year’s Parade honors the Chamber’s 100 years of service to the City. We are grateful for all Chamber members, past and present, who have worked to improve the economic and commercial life of the city,” said Rob Hayes, President of the NR Chamber of Commerce and owner of The Beechmont. Tavern.
“And our Grand Marshals, Chuck Strome and Bill Zimmermann, epitomize that spirit of service. We are pleased to honor them both at the Parade. Congratulations Chuck and Bill!” Hayes said.
The parade will feature giant parade floats and balloons, including New Rochelle’s iconic Mighty Mouse, Tom the Turkey and others. There will be marching bands playing throughout the parade, vintage cars and fire trucks, dancers, singers and marchers from Iona and Monroe universities, local schools, businesses and community organizations.
And of course Santa Claus will be there too! Sponsors are still needed for the Thanksgiving Parade, especially for the balloons, the NRHS Homecoming float, and the Paw Patrol characters.
