Memorial Day Parade - May 28th, 2018
Vermont’s largest Memorial Day parade is hosted by American Legion Post 14. The theme this year is "Honor and Commemorate: Freedom Isn't Free."" The parade starts at Vergennes Union High School at 11 am, and winds its way through the streets of Vergennes until it finishes at the City Green around 1:30 pm. Expect floats, tractors, classic cars, firetrucks, and much, much more!
Watch from anywhere along the parade route: Vergennes Union High School, Monkton Road, Main Street (Route 22A), South Maple Street, Victory Street, Green Street and the City Green. Plan ahead, as portions of these roads will be closed to traffic from approximately 10:50 am - 1 pm. Please do not park at the High School.
Traffic will be stopped on Main Street from the intersection with Monkton Road from about 10:50 am to the time the final parade unit enters South Maple Street, which is usually around 1:00 p.m. Likewise, traffic will not be able to enter Monkton Road from US Route 7 from 10:50 am to the time the final parade unit enters Main Street. Side roads along the parade route will be closed while the parade is in process, to include School Street, South Maple Street, Green Street and New Haven Road. Please allow enough time for these delays or take an alternate route around Vergennes to reach your destination.
Awards for parade participants will be announced on the City Green at the end of the parade. Following the awards ceremony, a chicken BBQ will be held at the American Legion Post 14. All are welcome
