This year’s parade kicks off at 6:30 p.m .on Saturday, November 30, with the tree lighting at 8:15 p.m. Free shuttle available, the Holiday Parade Shuttle Bus, will start at 4:30 p.m., stopping only at the Huntington Station train station and the intersection of Green Street and West Carver Street. The two HART Holiday Parade buses will run until 10 p.m.

Parade goers can also board the Paramount’s shuttle trolley, which will operate from 6 p.m. to 1:45 a.m., taking passengers from the parking lot at the intersection of New York Avenue and Church Street to West Carver.

Parade will be on New York Avenue and Main St with the reviewing stand, where the tree lighting will be, at Main Street and Wall Street

Last year, between 5,000 and 10,000 people lined New York Avenue and Main Street to watch the parade, which includes lavish floats, Long Island’s biggest electric light parade display and an appearance by Santa Claus. The parade will include competitions for the best floats in three categories – fire department, commercial and not-for-profit – with judging based on how well they follow the theme of the parade, which this year is Holiday Toys.

Numerous fire departments, scouts, and veterans and civic groups are scheduled to participate in the parade, which will begin at the Big H Shopping Center and proceed north on New York Avenue to Main Street, then west along Main Street past the reviewing stand at Wall Street to West Neck Road. Wall Street will be closed to traffic from Main Street to Gerard Street until 9 p.m. for the festival, which will include performances from many local groups and promotions from local merchants.

    Yes Huntington has become a secular and progressive town. Not good. Nowhere in the ad or the article is Christmas mentioned even once. And the holiday tree is another attempt to take Christ out of Christmas. How pathetic and deceitful. It is and never was a holiday tree it is a Christmas tree.People and governments who attempt to revise Christmas should be ashamed of themselves.

    HAVE A MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS

    @Sans..i agree with you but the people of huntington spoke in the election and they clearly support liberal values. there was a choice this time. and unfortunately liberalism prevailed.Sad but true.

    It’s only fair if they call the Menorah a “Holiday candelabra”.

    My family,friends and many of my co-workers will not shop in any store that refuses to mention and display signs of Christmas and Hanukkah.

    The more people that do this the better the Christmas Hanukkah holiday season will be.

  • It is What it Is

    A holiday tree is a CHRISTMAS TREE
