Honoree:  The Ragamuffin Parade has been an annual tradition in Bay Ridge since 1966. Local children wear Halloween costumes weeks before Halloween and march down Third Avenue on the day before the Third Avenue Festival, typically, the last weekend in September or the first weekend in October. The first parade was put together by Our Lady of Angels?s Father McKenna and local resident Cliff Scanlon. Also, in the Ragamuffin Thanksgiving Day parade, Bay Ridge hosts one of the biggest parades in the United States where children beg door to door, dressed as ragamuffins. (Gentile)
