The Township of Union Veteran’s Alliance Memorial Day Parade will kick off at 10:00 am on Monday, May 27th on Vauxhall Rd. and travel along Stuyvesant Ave as a tribute those who have died in service of the United States of America. We invite our residents to come out and pay tribute.

During the parade, enjoy the floats, Clydesdales horses, military units and vehicles, motorcycles, Uptown String Band, Civil War reenactors and, many civic and youth organizations as they march with our military. Two new organizations marching with us this year are award-winning Legion of Boom Marching Band and Weequahic High School Marching Band. Also marching in our parade this year is Brigadier General Edward Chrystal currently serving as the Land Component Commander for the New Jersey Army National Guard. 

We encourage our residents to set up their lawn chairs near the Pearl Harbor Square to see the Grandstand and get the best seat in the house. The closing ceremony at Veteran’s Honor Roll and Memorial Park will also present the opportunity for spectators to witness a Revolutionary War Battle reenactment at 11:30am as well as live cannon fire.
