5/29/2023 - Memorial Day Parade - Calling all Veterans & Civic/Youth Groups!

Memorial Day Parade
May 29, 2023

Calling all Veterans!

Join the Town of Canton as we honor all those who serve and sacrifice for our freedom. We understand that many of the older Veterans may not be up to marching. For that reason, we would like to offer Veterans both the opportunity to ride in the parade and to be picked up prior to the parade. The Canton Community Center will be open to Veterans for coffee and donuts on parade day, Monday, May 29, 2023, at 8:45 a.m. If you plan to participate in the parade, need a ride or would like to be picked up prior to the event, please contact Melissa Denton, Executive Assistant to CAO & First Selectman at (860) 693-7841.  

Other civic or youth groups that wish to march are also welcome to join; if interested in joining, groups should plan to gather at the Canton Intermediate School at 9:30 a.m. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. heading south on Dyer Ave; taking a right onto Maple Ave; taking a left onto Main Street; taking a right onto Center Street and proceeding to the Village Cemetery where a memorial service will be held. 

Hope you are able to join us as we honor our Veterans on May 29th.
