SCHENECTADY – Schenectady held its first-ever First Responders Holiday Parade Tuesday night as police cars, fire trucks and ambulances wound their way around the city.

The parade came after COVID forced the cancelation last month of Schenectady’s annual holiday parade down State Street.

Tuesday night’s more unconventional parade saw the emergency vehicles head through in a line through every neighborhood of the city.

The parade was a cooperative effort of the City of Schenectady’s Fire and Police departments, the Schenectady County Sheriff’s Department, the City’s Department of General Services, and the Mohawk Ambulance Company.
