Sunday August 6th

The parade is the last official event of Yankee Homecoming.  It begins at the intersection of Moseley Avenue and Ferry Road and follows a 2 mile route down historic High Street in Newburyport, ending near the Newbury line.  The parade features traditional attractions such as emergency vehicles, antique cars, marching bands and entertainers, but also adds a distinctive local flavor with floats sponsored/created by local businesses and organizations.
