Newton Parades

Memorial Day Parade

The annual Memorial Day Parade is scheduled for Memorial Day each year, at 10:00 AM. The parade can be viewed from Spring Street or Moran Street (see route map below).

We invite your organization or group to participate in this traditional event by marching in the parade. If you would like to participate or have any questions regarding the parade, feel free to contact us. Floats and vehicles such as antique cars are welcome to participate, too.

Please follow us on Facebook for Memorial Day parade announcements.

Holiday Parade: November 27, 2021

The GNCC hosts the Holiday Parade each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The parade kicks off at 10:00 AM and can be be viewed from Spring Street or Moran Street (see route map below). This is a magical and fun event for all in attendance. Each year, it grows larger and more festive!

The parade includes themed floats hosted by local organizations, bands playing live music, and community groups marching in celebration of the holidays. The final act is the guest of honor himself — Santa arriving in Newton! After the parade, children are invited to visit with Santa and tell him their holiday wishes.

Your organization is invited to celebrate by marching or driving a festive float down Spring Street, too! Or, sponsor the event to have your business showcased in our press coverage and advertising! Applications are due by November 1st.

Holiday Parade Forms : Float application (now closed) | Sponsorship application (now closed)

Please follow us on Facebook for Holiday parade announcements.

Thank you to the 2021 Holiday Parade sponsors for their support!
