When the Town of Harrison and the Harrison Fest Committee Inc. moved the Harrison Fest from its originally scheduled date in June because of unexpected overlap with a Red Bull's game, one big concern was what the weather would be like for Harrison's 175th Anniversary Parade. We can safely say that that concern no longer exists.
The weather for this weekend has highs of 86 degrees and lows of 66 degrees with very low humidity and little chance of rain. The low humidity will help everyone marching in the parade and the spectators watching along the Parade route up Harrison Avenue from Joseph Supor Boulevard past Town Hall onto 2nd Street. Viewing of the Parade will be from Patterson Street to 2nd Street.
There are over 40 groups that will be participating. Elected Official, Marching Bands, traditional dancing groups from various countries, fire departments, police departments including local and county police departments, Veteran Organizations, Harrison Fest Queens, and much more.
Kickoff is at 12 noon. Assembly is at 11 a.m. on Joseph Supor Boulevard off of Harrison Avenue.
