Memorial Day Parade in the City of Annapolis
Set for May 27; Participants Welcome
Annapolis, MD (April 25, 2019) Mayor Gavin Buckley announced that the City of Annapolis Memorial Day Parade will be held on Monday, May 27, at 10 a.m.
The parade follows the traditional route beginning on West Street at Amos Garrett Blvd. From there, the parade will go around Church Circle, down Main Street, and end at City Dock. Marching bands, as well as veteran, community, and patriotic organizations will be part of the parade honoring and remembering those who have died serving our country.
Immediately following the parade will be the annual wreath laying ceremony at Susan Campbell Park. This ceremony is open to the public and all are welcome.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving their country,” Mayor Buckley said. “We can never fully repay that debt of gratitude, but we can honor their sacrifice with a day of recognition.”
