SKOWHEGAN — The Skowhegan Memorial Day Parade will be held 10 a.m. Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. The parade is to honor those we have lost during a day of remembrance and will feature local veterans, legislators and groups in support of veterans. The parade will be followed by a short ceremony at Skowhegan Veterans Park on Water Street. This is a rain or shine event.
The lineup for the parade begins at 9:15 a.m. on Dyer Street which is off Madison Avenue in Skowhegan. Groups in attendance are asked to show up at that time. If you or your group is interested in marching or riding to show support for our veterans, please let organizers know ahead of time, if possible. This parade is intended to show support for local veterans- groups with other interests besides- that may not be allowed to participate. Final decisions will be made by the organizing committee and the veteran organizations in attendance.
