The Newtown Labor Day parade is being held on Monday, and steps off at 10am. 


The Grand Marshal for the 57th Annual event is Eunice Laverty, longtime owner of Bagel Delight.  She has opened her shop each morning, including Christmas, for 22 years to a rush of steady customers.  A retired Social Worker,  Laverty is a supporter of many organizations and town events, which fits this year's parade theme of “Serving the Community.” 


Newtown Police say parking will not be allowed along the entire Parade Route and in Line-Up areas. This will be strictly enforced.  There is no parking on private or town property without written permission. For spectators and participants, parking is available at: Big Y, Caraluzzi’s Market, Hawley School, and St. Rose.
