Going strong in Bay Ridge since 1966, the Bay Ridge Ragamuffin Parade is the last of what was once a popular Thanksgiving-season parade tradition across the country, in which children dressed up and marched in local parades.
Children from across Bay Ridge are encouraged to join in and march in the parade. Sign-up and other details are available on the Ragamuffin Parade website.
