The Sleepy Hollow High School Marching Band returns to entertain us along with St Christopher’s Band, The Tarrytown VFW Band, and The Tappan Zee Bridgemen.
Following the parade, Arduino reminds everyone to stay for the Block Party. Carnival performers will also entertain us at the Block Party on Main Street. Once the DJ concludes, the AM Band plays until 10:30pm. Restaurants will be serving on the street with plenty of great food for everyone. The parade is a combined effort between The Village of Tarrytown, The Chamber of Commerce and Sponsors.
