The Memorial Day Parades in South Salem and Goldens Bridge are the most popular parades. The local joke is that if you aren’t watching one, you are in it. The Goldens Bridge parade begins at 11 a.m. and makes its way down Old Bedford Road. The South Salem parade starts around noon and travels along Main Street.

The South Salem Fire Department stages a parade along Route 35 as part of its annual carnival.

The Katonah Fire Department also has an annual firemen’s parade in the summer.
