Memorial Day Parade 5/26

Memorial Day Parade 5/26
Posted on 05/21/2024
The Saturday Wreath Ceremony May 25th at 11:00 a.m. on the Cheshire Congregational Green.  A Flags Across Cheshire event, where flags are placed on veteran’s grave markers will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday May 25th.

The 2024 Cheshire Memorial Day Parade will honor the year of the 80th Anniversary of D-Day and will take place on Sunday, May 26th at 1:30 p.m. There is no rain date.  In case of inclement weather, the parade may be cancelled.  Information will be available on the Parks & Recreation website at and on Facebook by 10:00 a.m. the morning of the parade.

Shuttle bus service will be offered from Cheshire High School to the beginning of the parade route.  The buses will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Restrooms will be available at Highland Elementary School and at the Youth Center.
We ask all parade participants to keep the theme in mind when decorating floats or in developing posters, banners or any related materials for the parade.  It is important to the Town of Cheshire, the Cheshire Veterans Council and all the residents and businesses in Cheshire continue to recognize and honor those who serve and have served our country.

New for this year, the Parade Committee has decided not to halt the parade at the Veteran's Memorial Plaza because it’s disruptive for the parade and a duplicate presentation of the event that occurs on Saturday.  Also, there will be no reviewing stand at the end of the parade at Cheshire High School in order to keep the parade moving.
