The Fleur De Lis Parade

Fifteen fleur-de-lis sculptures --   five-foot- tall fiberglass sculptures, each individually decorated by a local artist --  are installed around downtown New Rochelle , a project which grew out of  the city’s 325th anniversary celebration. The project is a collaboration between the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (BID), the New Rochelle Council on the Arts and the City of New Rochelle.

Each of the selected artists received one of the fiberglass fleur-de-lis forms – especially designed and fabricated for New Rochelle by Fiberglass Farm of Belfast, ME --  to decorate. The distinctive shape was chosen to represent New Rochelle’s French roots: The city was founded by Huguenots in 1688 and the fleur-de-lis is part of the city’s seal.     The intent of the project is to showcase local talent and celebrate the city’s rich history, a history which is further highlighted in downtown’s New Rochelle Walk of Fame at Library Green which commemorates notable individuals with distinct ties to new Rochelle and their contributions to America. The sculptures also compliment downtown’s emerging arts scenes with art galleries, public arts installations and artist studios.
