Memorial Day arrives this weekend, and it is a time to reflect on the service of those who answered our nation’s call in times of armed conflict, and made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure future generations of Americans would remain free.
Below is Memorial Day Parade information for Ridgefield this weekend to commemorate this national holiday and the heroic actions of those who fought in the name of our freedom.
Monday, May 28, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. – Memorial Day Parade steps off from Jesse Lee Church, marching down Main St. and ending with a closing ceremony in Ballard Park.
The closing ceremony will include short speeches by honored guests and patriotic music throughout the program.
Be advised for traffic: King Lane will be a one-way street from 9:30 a.m. until the end of the parade.
If the parade is cancelled because of bad weather (like last year), the closing ceremonies planned for Ballard Park will be moved to the sanctuary of Jesse Lee Methodist Church on Main St. at 11:30 a.m. The American Legion invites people to attend the observances in the church if the parade is rained out.
I wish you and your family the best this Memorial Day weekend.
