Plans are underway for the West Hartford Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28, 2012 at 10 a.m. Please sign your group or organization up for the parade by emailing your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Memorial Day Parade will commence at the corner of Woodrow Street and Farmington Avenue and proceed to the Town Hall. Assembly of parade units will take place at 9:30 a.m. in designated areas west of Woodrow Street on Farmington Avenue.
Immediately following the parade, a brief memorial service will be held at the West Hartford Veterans Memorial, located at the corner of Farmington Avenue and North Main Street.
The West Hartford Veterans Commission welcomes all veterans, with a group or alone, to join us in the parade. West Hartford takes great pride in hosting its annual Memorial Day Parade. It follows a tradition established by returning West Hartford veterans from World War I in the 1920s.
The 2012 West Hartford Memorial Day Parade Committee is a joint endeavor and cooperative effort of the West Hartford Veterans Affairs Commission, The American Legion of West Hartford Hayes-Velhage Post 96, and Hannon-Hatch VFW Post 9929, in partnership with the Town of West Hartford.
