This zany and wildly popular parade draws over 7,000 people each year from West Hartford and beyond. You should be a part of it!

The Park Road Parade comprises about 100 contingents that include clubs, organizations, schools, churches, bands, sport leagues, clowns, businesses, antique and exotic cars, and public officials. Anything goes in this parade, from simple banners with marchers sporting the same T-shirt, to elaborate costumes, dance numbers and floats. Come join us!

Each year awards are given to: Best Float, Best Overall Performance, Best Costume, Best Musical Performance, and Best Community Spirit.  Make your contingent the best it can be and win!

The parade begins at South Highland and Park Road and ends at South Quaker Lane and lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

West Hartford Community Television broadcasts live the parade and replays it throughout the month of October. Eachparade contingent is announced on air.

The genesis of the parade started in 1998 as a celebration to a two-year road reconstruction and beautification project which bonded both businesses and residents of the area. Since then the parade has grown bigger and better.

There is no fee to participate. Sign up today by filling out the form found on the parade website www.ParkRoadCT.com/events.
