On Memorial Day, the City's annual ceremony will be held at 9 am on the front lawn of City Hall. The public can view the ceremony via our live stream on the City's Facebook page. In light of the ongoing pandemic and the risks of large gatherings, the City has opted to postpone the annual parade until Labor Day.
The annual Memorial Day ceremony and parade brings together a grateful community to memorialize the nation's fallen heroes, and to honor local heroes serving in all branches of the military.
