Memorial Day Parade
In partnership with the Melrose Veterans Services Department, Mayor Paul Brodeur today announced that the City’s Memorial Day Parade will return on Sunday, May 28. All Melrose residents are invited to join the City as it honors local veterans—our nation’s heroes—during the parade and other Memorial Day 2023 observances.
The parade will step off from Memorial Hall located at 590 Main Street at 1:30 p.m. The parade will continue down Main Street, with stops at Pine Banks where children will be reunited with families. The parade will then continue down Main Street and arrive at Wyoming Cemetery, at which point the main Memorial Day ceremony will be held by the Melrose Veterans Advisory Board and Veterans Services Department. Participants will be required to assemble in the municipal parking lot behind Memorial Hall at approximately 1 p.m., however, those with floats and antique cars will be required to assemble in front of Memorial Hall at 12:30 p.m.
