The parade itself begins at 3 p.m. and continues down the street to the Hardison Funeral Home.
Expected to be led by New York State Police, the parade will showcase Ransomville pride, with organizations such as O. Leo Curtiss American Legion Post 830, Ransomville Volunteer Fire Co. Ransomville Garden Club, singers âStep in Timeâ, Ransomville Speedway, Rob and Jean of RK Motorsports, Farmers Feed America and Santa’s Sleigh Team all participate.
