Events Around Ann Arbor for Memorial Day Weekend

Many people have forgotten the reasons we celebrate Memorial Day.

However, in the Ann Arbor Area there are many events planned where you can honor those who have died in the service of our country.

One of the events my family and I have celebrated for many years in in Saline, the Memorial Day Parade. The parade begins at 10:00 AM in front of the fire station and moves to the Oakwood Cemetery for a ceremony and wreath placing.

The Dexter Parade also begins and 10:00 AM and travels to the Gazebo at Monument Park.

In Chelsea the parade also begins at 10:00.

In Ann Arbor the Glazier Home Owners Association sponsors a parade at 10:00 AM, where kids are invited to decorate their bikes and participate. Ypsilanti’s parade begins at 9:00 AM and goes down Huron Street.

Here is a link to all the Parade Routes in Washtenaw County.

Honoring the fallen is a great way to spend an hour or so within your local communities.There are many War Memorial Monuments throughout Washtenaw County.

How many have you seen?

Enjoy you weekend but take a few minutes to reflect on our fallen men and woman.
