The 2020 Greenbelt Labor Day Festival Parade was scheduled to take place on Monday, September 7, from 10 am to noon. This year would mark the 65th year of the parade. The first parade took place in 1956 during the second year of the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival.
Unfortunately, with large crowds now prohibited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to put on our traditional Greenbelt Labor Day Parade this year. Instead we have put together a historical video of the Greenbelt Labor Day Parade that you can view starting 10am the morning of Labor Day:
This video will also be streamed from the “Greenbelt Labor Day Festival” Facebook page starting at 10am Labor Day morning.
Meanwhile, you may enjoy a YouTube video of the entire 2019 Greenbelt Labor Day Parade:
You can follow along the above parade video with this list of last year’s parade participants.
Over the past several years, Greenbelt Municipal Access Television has filmed each Greenbelt Labor Day Parade. The historical parade video was created by selecting excerpts from those videos taken over the past 20 years. The video was edited by Beverly Palau of Greenbelt Municipal Access Television with assistance from Jim Tilton, the Greenbelt Labor Day Parade Coordinator.
