Invitation to Larchmont Edgewater Civic League’s Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony

The Larchmont Edgewater Civic League invites everyone to their first-ever Larchmont Edgewater Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony on Monday, 29 May from 10:00am – Noon!

They’ll be celebrating our freedom with a fun neighborhood parade, and then Honor the Fallen with a brief ceremony. The parade starts at 10:00am at St. Patrick Catholic School and ends at Larchmont United Methodist Church, and at the end, they’ll have free hotdogs, ice cream, community info-booths, and a brief 11:30am wreath-laying ceremony. Mayor Alexander is the Grand Marshal of the parade and will preside over the ceremony as well.

There will be a number of other participants marching, including Scouts, Daughters of the American Revolution & Sons of the American Revolution (both, in period attire), Gorra the Goggled Great Dane Service Dog (riding in a car with a sunroof, where she will have her head sticking out and watching the crowd), American Legion Post 35, Lafayette River Circle of the Kings Daughters, classic cars, bagpipes/drums, a WWII jeep, Norfolk Fire, ODU Police, and local school kids marching and on bikes.  Additionally multiple elected officials and candidates for office will be marching, including:  Mayor Alexander, Councilwoman McClellan, Delegate Angelia Williams Graves, Delegate Candidate Andy Pittman, Delegate Candidate Phil Hernandez, and Norfolk Commonwealth Attorney, Ramin Fatehi.

If weather is a concern, they will make the go/no-go call on Sunday afternoon and let everyone know via their website, and their Facebook page, They do ask that everyone refrain from parking along the route to give maximum room for safety and to optimally view the parade.
