Daily Gazette Holiday Parade



The holidays are here! It is time to celebrate! The Annual Daily Gazette Holiday Parade in Downtown Schenectady will be held on November 18th at 5:00 p.m. This will be the 49th anniversary of the Capital Region tradition. The Daily Gazette, The Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Schenectady will be coming together for this wonderful occasion.
