Webster’s Memorial Day parade details

 These enthusiastic young ladies were a part of last year’s Memorial Day parade. 

Looks like Mother Nature is going to bless us with beautiful weather for the next several days, and it might even last through Memorial Day. If you’re anything like me, you’ve already got lots of plans to celebrate the holiday weekend with friends and family.

For me, taking time out to watch Webster’s Memorial Day parade is high on that list.

This is always a very nice parade, and the ceremony that follows it at Webster Rural Cemetery is always moving. I highly recommend bringing your children to see both the parade and the ceremony, so they might begin to understand the huge debt we owe our servicemen and women.

Here are the details of Webster’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony, held Monday May 28.

  • 9:00 a.m.:  All groups participating in the parade will assemble at Spry Middle School on Sanford Street. All active duty and ex-service men and women are invited to take part in the parade. Any veterans who would like to ride in the bed of an Army truck are asked to be at Spry by 9 a.m.
  • 9:30 a.m.:  Parade moves out from Spry, down South Avenue, turning west on Main Street and proceeding to Webster Rural Cemetery.
  • 9:50 a.m. (approx.): Parade arrives at Webster Rural Cemetery.

This year’s ceremonies are dedicated in memory of the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, and to those who served and/or gave the ultimate sacrifice in that war.

    Who is head of this parade, who hosts it? Very interested in having my Dancers participated next year! Thank you!

      Hi Katie,

      The American Legion and VFW run this parade. The contacts I have for it are Charles Klauck 671-2302 or Don Linborg 377-2086. But it’s a pretty solemn parade, and while there are Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts and the like, I’m not sure they would welcome dancers. But good luck!

      Missy
