“Groups from as far away as Norway, up and down the East Coast, Tennessee and across the country are coming to our parade here in Annapolis because it’s become such a huge hit,” said Mayor Buckley. “Hotels are sold out, hundreds of fire fighters and first responders are coming to town to participate, and our City of Annapolis departments are prepared and ready for the crowds and to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time..”

The parade will travel down West Street to Church Circle, around the circle to Main Street, down Main Street, and end at City Dock. Streets along the route will close at 1 p.m. and are expected to remain closed until approximately 3 p.m.

The parade is sponsored by Naptown Events, which is sponsoring bus shuttles from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to the staging area (near Maryland Hall) for parade participants and to the downtown area for parade watchers.

This year’s parade and the surrounding festivities are in support of Wounded Troops through a local non-profit called Warrior Events.
