A longstanding local tradition of remembering the men and women who courageously gave their lives in service to our country will continue May 30, 2022 with the Harrison Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony.
The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at Harrison Elementary (600 E. Broadway) and proceed west on Broadway, north on State Street and east on Harrison Avenue to Hill Street. The parade will end at Glenhaven Cemetary, where a ceremony will take place.

Additional instrumentals will be performed by Harrison High School Marching Band.
