Video “The First Annual Motor Parkway Parade”

This 5-minute film documents the First Annual Motor Parkway Parade held on Sunday, October 30, 2011. 

Celebrating the completion of the Lake Ronkonkoma section of the Motor Parkway, the event was sponsored by the Lake Ronkonkoma Heritage Association.



The 15.7 mile parade route included the last 12.7 miles of the Long Island Motor Parkway from Deer Park Avenue, Dix Hills to Rosevale Avenue, Lake Ronkonkoma and 3.0 miles on County Road 16.


The ground video was filmed by Steve Lucas supplemented by a lap camera on the lead car- the Alco "Black Beast".
