DEARBORN — Dearborn’s 97th annual Memorial Day Parade will take place Monday, May 29, in partnership with the Dearborn Allied War Veterans Council. Please join the city of Dearborn as we honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice by joining us for the oldest Memorial Day parade in the state that pays tribute to all who lost their lives in service.
Reminder: Due to planned MDOT construction, the route has been moved for this year. It will now begin at Michigan Ave. and Nowlin St. in west Dearborn and will travel eastward to the Dearborn Historical Museum’s McFadden Ross House at Michigan Ave. and Brady, where the traditional Remembrance Ceremony will take place.
This year’s theme is Arab Americans Who Serve and the grand marshal is Dearborn native and United States Air Force Captain Maysaa M. Ouza.
The parade will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. with a military funeral procession. The grand marshal and other parade groups will follow.
A Remembrance Ceremony will take place on the lawn of the Dearborn Historical Museum’s McFadden Ross House, 915 Brady St, at noon. The public is welcome to attend.
