Memorial Day Parade
Monday, May 29, 2023
The City of Elk River is once again hosting a Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 29 at 10:00 a.m. The parade begins on Norfolk Street, just east of Handke Pit, and will run down Main Street to King Avenue, where attendees are encouraged to gather at Rivers Edge Commons Park for a Memorial Day ceremony at 10:30 a.m.
The Memorial Day parade honors those who have served, gave their lives serving, and who currently defend our country as a member of the armed forces.
The parade includes members of the Elk River American Legion and VFW posts, as well as ISD 728 Cadets, The Legion Auxiliary, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, Legion Riders and several other organizations. If you’re an Elk River Veteran who is not a member of the Legion or VFW, you are encouraged to take part in the parade as well. Please report in uniform to Norfolk Street at 9:15 a.m. on Memorial Day.
