Memorial Day Parade Honors World War II Veterans

Despite a morning that began with thunderstorms, skies cleared just in time for West Hartford's annual Memorial Day parade.

West Hartford residents young and old turned out in force for the annual Memorial Day parade which kicked off at 10 a.m. from the corner of Four Mile Road and Farmington Ave. The early morning thunderstorms gradually turned into light showers, and the sun was shining as the day turned steamy by the parade's end. Veterans, marching bands, scouts, sports teams, and civic groups took part in the festivities, and the route was crowded with spectators cheering and waving to family and friends.
