Lincoln Park Memorial Day Parade: May 19th 10AM

The Lincoln Park Memorial Day Parade Committee is pleased to announce the return of our City’s signature parade.

Please join us “In Honor of ALL Fallen Soldiers” on May 19, 10am, as we honor and remember those in uniform who paid the ultimate price. Immediately following the parade there will be an honor guard and military ceremonies at Memorial Park, please join us for the full celebration.

Congressman John D. Dingell honors the City by serving as our Parade Grand Marshall. Our goal has been to bring back a good old-fashioned small-town Memorial day parade. Many volunteers and sponsors have given of the time, talents, skills and treasure to make the revitalized parade a reality.

The main parade route will be on North bound Fort street, starting at White street and marching down to Memorial park and ending at Merryl street. The parade committee would like to thank the VFW Post 552 and the American Legion Post 67, for sponsoring the parade and being involved with the planning since November.
