The Naperville Memorial Day Parade will step off at 10:30 a.m. on Mon., May 27, stepping off from Jackson and West Streets, heading east along Jackson Avenue, north up Washington Street to Benton Avenue and into Central Park. It’s customary to hear applause and witness salutes from spectators who line the streets, recognizing the supreme sacrifice of many military families and that freedom isn’t free. Crowds also show rousing respect to units of veterans with flags and to marching bands with many musicians, young and old, performing patriotic songs to remind us that peaceful assembly is cherished in our world.
MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVANCE IN CENTRAL PARK, after the parade, a 30 minute observance begins at 12:15PM May 27 at the Naperville Community Concert Center in Central Park. The ceremony welcomes all ages to commemorate the holiday with remembrances of sacrifice by honored veterans and patriotic music performed by the Naperville Municipal Band.
