Celebrate The Holiday At The Holiday Bonfire + Parade

Santa Claus at Christmas parade

If you’re looking for something fun and exciting to do with your family this holiday season, join us for an unforgettable day in downtown Riverhead at the Holiday Bonfire + Parade. Held December 11th in downtown Riverhead, this annual event is one of the most popular winter festivals in New York. The Holiday Bonfire & Parade event is a great way to celebrate the holidays, see the downtown area decorated for Christmas, meet Santa Claus and his reindeer, enjoy live holiday music, and sip hot chocolate by the bonfire.

The Holiday Parade

The Lions Club will kick off the festivities with their 69th annual holiday parade starting at 3:00 pm. Attendees can expect a colorful and festive parade with floats, a marching band, dancers, antique cars, tractors, fire trucks, and much more. The parade will begin at Osborn Avenue and West Main Street and march east, looping south to the Peconic Riverfront.

The Bonfire

At the end of the parade, enjoy free hot chocolate at the bonfire. Santa will be there to take photos in front of his gingerbread house. Celebrate the holiday season together with friends and neighbors in a spirit of peace and community fellowship. Officials at the BID expect hundreds of locals and tourists alike to attend.
