Freeport gears up for annual Memorial Day parade


The Village of Freeport is gearing up for its annual Memorial Day Parade, set to take place on Monday, May 29 at 10 a.m. The event will feature civic groups, religious organizations, veterans, and citizens uniting to march in honor of the holiday. The parade will begin at Freeport High School, located at 50 S. Brookside Ave.

To participate in the parade and observance, organizations are required to register with the Memorial Day Parade Committee. Registration is necessary for legal and safety reasons, as the committee needs to know the organization’s name, the number of people marching, and the vehicles that will be in the parade.

Two parade meetings will take place at Post Headquarters, located at 925 S. Ocean Avenue in Freeport. The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 18th at 7:00 pm, and the final meeting will be on Thursday, May 25th at 7 p.m.

Interested organizations can contact Cmdr. Eric Young at (516) 398-2376 or Adjutant David Cockerel at (516) 410-9994 to register for the event.

This year’s Memorial Day Parade is dedicated to Gold Star Mothers and Families, and the committee expresses gratitude to all participants for their support. The parade is a time-honored tradition in the Village of Freeport, and the committee looks forward to a successful event.
