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, please return this application by May 8th. Feel free to contact us with any questions. Floats and vehicles such as antique cars are welcome to participate, too.

Please follow us on Facebook for Memorial Day parade announcements.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade
The GNCC does not organize the Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Parade. For information on that parade, contact The Sussex County St. Patrick’s Day Committee or Newton Fire Department.

Newton Parade Route:

All floats should arrive by 8:30 AM, and marchers should arrive between 9:00 AM and 9:30 AM at the Lower Spring Street staging area. Be advised that Spring Street will be closed to vehicular traffic except for floats. We recommend entering the staging area (Thorlabs parking lot) from Woodside Avenue at Quantum Leap.
The staging area will be open for you to drop off but you will not be allowed to park your cars there. All vehicles can park in any of the municipal lots in town free of charge on parade day.
