Our Juneteenth parade attracts a diverse audience from Westchester County and beyond. The festivities begin with a parade through the heart of White Plains, featuring floats, spectacular costumes, marching bands and entertainment from the Tri-State region.
The Juneteenth Heritage Committee will honor posthumously Mr. Theodore "Teddy" Lee & recognize Mrs. JoAnne Lee as the 2022 Parade Grand Marshals respectively. The Lee's have served the City of White Plains faithfully, as funeral directors and community advocates for all. With that, we are proud to acknowledge them both!
