Speculator 4th of July Reverse Parade
The parade committee has thought long and hard about the best way to go forward with their parade. As much as they'd love to have a "normal" parade, it's not an option this year. Thanks to the support of the Village of Speculator, they will be holding a "Reverse Parade" on Downey Avenue.
Floats will line the road and from 4pm to 5:30pm cars will be able to drive through in one direction to spectate. This will make the parade safe and contactless.
They have also made the decision to change the parade theme and have a little fun, so the new theme will be "Social Distancing in the Adirondacks!"
Feel free to decorate your car as you come out to join the fun. Parade organizers acknowledge that this is not ideal, but their only other option was to cancel the parade.
If you're interested in having a float in the parade, send the organizers a message on Facebook at Speculator 4th of July Parde, or contact the Adirondacks Spectular Region Chamber of Commerce for an application.
