The parade begins at 11 a.m. on New York Ave. at E. 15th Street and continues north to the fairgrounds in the LIRR parking lot at Church Street.

This year’s grand marshals are set to be honored throughout the day and will be made up of a trio with deep ties to the Town of Huntington.

World Boxing Organization junior welterweight champion from Greenlawn, Chris Algieri; former Huntington Republican chairman, Anthony “Tony” Mastroianni; and longtime president of the Whitman Village  Cooperative Board, Thomas Jerideau will participate in the day’s events which include a fair promising appearances from local artists, booths with crafts and services, food, games and much more.

The Fairgrounds will remain open until 5 p.m. Saturday night.
