MIDDLEBURY — The annual Memorial Day parade in Middlebury will, of course, be held this coming Monday, May 27.

Legion Post 27, the town of Middlebury and the large number of guests attending will honor the more than 1 million men and women who have lost their lives defending America since the Revolutionary War.

The parade, which will include its usual accompaniment of military color guard, fire trucks, bands, civic groups and cute kids, will assemble in the Middlebury Arts Center parking lots at 8:30 a.m. and commence at 9 a.m. Marchers will proceed from Porter Field Road off South Main Street, through the traffic circle, around the green and end at Court Square.  There will be a ceremony following the parade at the Soldier’s Monument in front of the Town Hall Theater. 

There is still time for those wanting to participate. Contact the Middlebury American Legion Post 27 at 802-388-9311 ext: “0” or at [email protected] indicating the name of the group or organization, the number and nature of participation (walkers, vehicle, float, etc.), and a contact name and telephone number.
