3/9/2012 - 76th Annual Memorial Day Parade - Monday, May 28th

The Town of Hamden will present its 76th annual Memorial Day Parade on May 28, 2012, stepping off at 10:00 a.m. at Hamden High School and continuing north along Dixwell Avenue to the Memorial Town Hall. The Parade will be reviewed on Dixwell Avenue near Evergreen Avenue. Following the parade there will be a wreath ceremony at the Veterans Memorial in front of Hamden Middle School. After the invocation, Mayor Jackson and the Parade Marshal will address those in attendance, and wreaths will be placed at the Memorial.

The Town of Hamden would be honored if current members of our Armed Forces would join us. If you would like to march, please call the Mayor’s Office at 287-7100. The parade will serve as a tribute to the deeds of our Veterans and a source of pride to our citizens.

We are always in need of convertibles to drive some of our Veterans.

Many bands and local organizations are planning to participate. If your group is interested in marching with us, please contact Gerry Tobin in the Mayor’s Office at (203) 287-7100.
