Memorial Day Parade


May 28, 2018
11:00 a.m.

The Spring Lake Memorial Day parade is a time-honored tradition that gives the community an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the current, past, and fallen service veterans from the area.

Every year, a parade marshal is selected from the community. Someone who has served the Country is given the honor to represent the armed forces as the parade marshal. The selection of the Parade Marshall is done by nomination. Any community member may submit a nomination to the parade chairs.
