Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony Monday May 30, 2022

The Memorial Day Parade will begin promptly at 10:00 AM. The parade route will be as follows: beginning at Mestek, the marchers will march south down North Elm Street, continuing across the Great River Bridge onto Elm Street, south to Broad Street, right at the intersection of Broad Street and West Silver Street to Parker Memorial Park for the Memorial Day ceremony starting at 11AM.

The parade is a means of recognizing the sacrifices of those who gave their lives in defense of our country, and as such, is intended as a solemn event to be so conducted by the parade participants. No floats or commercial vehicles will participate in the parade. Only authorized city vehicles and veteran transport vehicles may participate. No dancing, acrobatics, or other celebratory activities are allowed.  

If the 2022 Memorial Day Parade is to be cancelled due to inclement weather, a notice will be placed on our local cable channel 15, and on the city web site, at approximately 7 am on the day of the parade. Even if the parade is cancelled, the Memorial Day ceremonies originally scheduled for Parker Memorial Park will be moved indoors to the Westfield South Middle School Auditorium and will begin at 11:00AM.
