UTICA, N.Y. -- Utica's Fourth of July Parade will include parts of New Hartford this year.

Mayor Robert Palmieri joined with the mayor of New Hartford and the town supervisor, along with police and parade organizers, to make the announcement Thursday.

The parade will start in front of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in South Utica and will travel south on Genesee Street to the village of New Hartford ending at the New Hartford Recreation Center at Mill Street and Oxford Road.

Parade organizers say this partnership between Utica and New Hartford will benefit the thousands of people who enjoy the event.

“Do you have a lot of neighborhoods between Utica in New Hartford so there's a lot of side streets for parking, but there are a lot of neighborhoods that people can now have them or convenience to come watch the parade, And certainly for people in New Hartford with the access to Oxford Road the rec center, there it just creates a more friendly family neighborhood environment,” said Ray Durso, with the Genesis Group.

The parade will kick off the Fourth of July celebrations.

Utica will have the party in the park from 6 to 10 p.m. at Proctor Park with food truck, entertainment and fireworks.

Then on July 5, New Hartford will have their own party at Sherrill Brook Park. That's also from 6 to 10 p.m. capping the night off with more fireworks.

All of the events are organized by the Genesis Group.
