From Amelia Earhart in 1932 through Winston Churchill in 1946, these parades have honoured famous persons. The most recent ticker tape parade took place in 2019 in celebration of the United States women’s national soccer team’s World Cup victory.

“There have been ticker tape parades up the Canyon of Heroes for decades,” de Blasio remarked. “But this one will have a unique spirit, a unique heart and soul because it will honour regular New Yorkers who have done something great and deserve our gratitude.”

“There are floats for health care professionals, first responders, educators, municipal employees, transit employees, supermarket and bodega workers, delivery persons, and more. All of the key players who made it possible” said the mayor.” “It’s a day to honour and remember the unsung heroes who frequently go unnoticed.”
