87th Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony
On Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, 2014 at 10:00 am the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 87th Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony. This year’s theme, Korea: The Forgotten War, pays special tribute to the veterans who served our country during this time.
This tradition is one of the area’s longest established Memorial Day parades. The Chamber invites all members and non- members, civic groups and businesses to participate in the parade as well as inviting veterans and active duty personnel home on leave to join us in this important celebration. Registration for the parade can be done online by visiting www.metuchenchamberexchange.com or you may call our office at 732-548-2964. Veterans and Active Duty Personnel should please contact the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce by Friday, May 16, so that special arrangements can be made for their participation. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m., rain or shine.
Please note: Due to the ongoing construction at the Lake Ave. bridge, the parade route and ceremony location will once again require a change. As it did last year, the parade will kick off from the Pearl Street lot, proceed down New St., turn right at Main St., follow Main St through town, turn right at Brunswick Ave., and end at Edgar Middle School. The Memorial Day Ceremony will take place inside the Edgar Middle School Gymnasium (49 Brunswick Ave) at the conclusion of the parade.
