Floats and personnel marching in the parade may desire to provide small tokens or candy for people in the crowds. For the safety of all participants, and the children that are prone to running out into the street to pick up candy and trinkets thrown short, they are NOT allowed to throw any items into the spectator space.

Uniformed personnel representing the communities they serve are encouraged to bring a 3′ X 6′ or 3′ X 8′ parade banner that introduces their agency / community to the spectators, as they march in the parade.

Our Mission: The East End Emerald Society is hoping to make this one of the best parades on the East End of L.I. Our organization raises funds purely to benefit the bands and groups that participate in the parade.
