4th Annual Huntington Awareness Day: “Unity in the Community Parade & Fair”

Once again, it looks like Huntington is going to the dogs, as Corky Nightingale’s Wag, Woof , Walk Canine Fashion Show is featured as part of the Fourth Annual Huntington Awareness Day activities on Saturday, September 7.  New to the festivities this year, Corky Nightingale’s Wag, Woof, Walk Canine Fashion Show, a parade-within-the-parade, will see canines come together to celebrate their breed diversity.  Spectators are invited to line New York Avenue to see canine “Super Models” with their owners show off their outfits down the “New York Avenue Cat Walk” wearing a variety of styles which represent their heritage and breed history. (Imagine French poodles wearing berets, German Shepherds wearing lederhosen and Scottish Terriers sporting kilts. Mixed breeds are encouraged to combine outfits.)

“We’re very excited to be including our four-legged friends and family members in this year’s Huntington Awareness Day activities,” said Alyssa Nightingale, President of Nightingale PR.  “Long Islanders, especially within the Huntington community love their dogs.  They are an important part of our families and of our community, and this is a wonderful and fun way to celebrate them as part of the diversity of our town,” she continued.

First held in 2010, Huntington Awareness Day has become an annual tradition, with thousands of people turning out to celebrate the community’s unity, diversity and solidarity.  As in past years, bands, floats, vintage cars, service groups and local merchants will join the march through Huntington Station from West Hills Road to Church Street, ending at the fair in the municipal parking lot between Railroad Street and Church Street.  The fair will include performances by local artists and booths offering crafts and services.  The event takes place from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

If you are interested in joining this pet friendly part of the parade, please go to for more information.  You must fill out a registration form to be part of the parade and ALL owners must be on leash.
