Please joins us for the 2017 Swanton Community Memorial Day Parade as we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can continue to live in freedom.. This year’s event will be held on Monday May 29th from 2:30 till done. (approximately an hour).

We are looking for folks and businesses to join our ever-growing parade. The only theme to this parade is patriotic. Build a float, dress your bike/vehicle up, be creative!

Line-up will begin at promptly 2:00pm at Raleigh Field on Jewett St. The parade will start at 2:30pm and will proceed up Grand Ave. There will be a short stop at Memorial (Flat Iron ) Park where a wreath will be placed and Taps played. We will continue on to the north end of the Village Green where we will lay a wreath at the Lady Liberty statue, have Taps and the National Anthem. We will have a speaker again this year.

After the ceremony, the Swanton Fire Dept. will be hosting a BBQ for the community. We hope to have a few items from Jaz Entertainment on site as well.

Once again, please make plans to join us on this fine day as we remember. As the old song goes… “we remember, we celebrate, we believe”.
