West Hartford’s Memorial Day parade is a time-honored tradition, with thousands marching and thousands more lining the sidewalks of Farmington Avenue and South Main Street along the parade route.

Rain and the threat of thunderstorms had resulted in the cancellation of the parade in 2016 and 2017, and even though Monday was cool with a bit of drizzle, residents were eager for this years event and showed up in force.

Grand Marshals Dawn Morris and Charles Carleton led off the festivities, and were joined by Honorary Assistant Parade Marshals Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, U. S. Rep. John B. Larson, State Reps. Andrew Fleischmann, Derek Slap, and Joe Verrengia, and members of the West Hartford Town Council and Board of Education.

Veterans, civic groups, and boy and girl scouts, as well as baseball, softball, lacrosse, football, and hockey teams, and marching bands from the middle and high schools, waved and entertained spectators along the route.

A ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial followed the parade.
