Old Saybrook, CT 2022 Memorial Day Parade

BANNOCKBURN, Ill. - Oct. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- A special highlight of this year's parade will be a U.S. Coast Guard flyover of naval dockside ceremonies between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. followed by military flyovers of the actual parade between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

This year's parade festivities feature two ceremonies: a Dockside Naval Ceremony with a rifle salute at 9 a.m.(rain or shine) followed by a parade at 10 a.m. to the Veterans Memorial Monuments on the Town Green on Main Street.

The day's events will begin with the Dockside Naval Ceremony assembling at 8:45 a.m. for all participating units at the Saybrook Point Pavilion parking lot located at the end of College Street, with a Wreath Laying Ceremony on the Connecticut River at 9:00 a.m. (rain or shine).

The Parade Assembly will be at 9:30 a.m. at the Stop & Shop parking lot. The Parade steps off promptly at 10:00 a.m. from Elm Street. The Parade will go straight across Route 1 to Main Street and proceed to the Veterans Memorial Monuments on the Town Green, where a Memorial Program will be conducted. In case of parade cancellation due to rain, the Memorial Program ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. at the Old Saybrook Fire Headquarters at 310 Main Street. This year, we are excited to announce that Gil Simmons, a United States Marine Corps veteran, and Chief Meteorologist for NEWS8 WTNH, will serve as our Master of Ceremonies.

The parade committee is also excited to announce that once again a special float will ride along the parade route featuring Blue Star mothers and their families as well as local veterans. (Blue Star families have sons and daughters currently serving in different branches of the armed services deployed around the country and around the world.)
