Plans for the Annual Westfield Memorial Day Parade are underway. The parade, scheduled for Monday, May 28, 2018, will have opening ceremonies at the Veterans Memorial Monument beginning at 9:00 a.m. Participants in this parade are required to assemble in the Lord & Taylor (West) parking lot at 8:00 a.m.
All Westfield organizations are invited to march in this year’s Tribute to Veterans who made the supreme sacrifice fighting for the freedom we often take for granted.
The parade committee urges organizations or individuals to either march in the parade, sponsor a wreath to be placed at the Monument or to make a financial contribution to the parade committee to help offset the costs of running the parade.
The committee is requesting information about any surviving World War II Veterans from Westfield and surrounding towns. We are planning a special tribute for them. Please call the number below.
This year’s parade route, after the opening ceremonies, will be straight up East Broad Street ending at Fairview Cemetery.
The Westfield Memorial Day Parade is sponsored by the Town of Westfield and The American Legion Martin Wallberg Post #3.
