Freund stressed the number of volunteers it takes to organize and execute the parade.
"There are a lot of people who put a lot of work into it " especially the day of the parade," said Freund. "We go a little crazy in the morning " we have vehicles coming at us and fire trucks and floats and hundreds and hundreds of children marching. There are a lot of people there who put all of this together. It's a lot of work to put together."
She said that the Schenectady Amateur Radio Club has kept the parade moving smoothly for years " even before the use of cell phones, which, Freund said, have made life a lot easier.
