Wag, Woof, Walk Canine Fashion Show During the 5th Annual "Unity in the Community Parade & Fair"
“We’re ecstatic to be including our adored canines and their family members in this year’s Huntington Awareness Day activities,”
Established in 2010, The Huntington Awareness Day Parade & Fair has become a highly anticipated annual tradition. Thousands of people will join together to embrace a common theme of “unity in the community”. Bands, floats, vintage cars, service groups and local merchants will unite as one in the march through Huntington Station.
This year, the community is excited to introduce WBO Light Welterweight Champion, Chris Algieri, Former Huntington Republican Chairman and Suffolk County Public Administrator, Anthony Mastrioanni, and President of the Whitman Village Cooperative Board, Thomas Jerideau who will be serving as the Grand Marshals of the parade.
The parade will start at 11:00 a.m. embarking from New York Ave and 15th Street and ending at the fair in the municipal parking lot between Railroad Street and Church Street. The fair will include performances by local artists, entertaining arts and crafts booths, local vendors and more! The community is also thrilled to welcome special guest, Elroy the Elk and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks' Drug Awareness Trailer. We will conclude our festivities at 5:00 p.m.
