The parade is organized each year by the Kiwanis Club of Sunnyside and features local civic groups, schools, bands and the Sunnyside Drum Corps. Each group will march behind its respective banner.

Flag Day is a national holiday that has been held every June 14 since 1949. The idea for Flag Day was originally proposed in 1885 as a way to inspire students to honor the nation’s flag.

The 53rd Annual Flag Day Parade is a great opportunity for residents of Sunnyside and Queens to come together and celebrate American pride.
