Editorial: Enjoy the Memorial Day Parade!

Do come out and support the Great Neck Memorial Day Parade this coming Monday, May 31, Memorial Day. This parade, Great Neck’s 82nd annual Memorial Day parade, begins at 9 a.m. at South Middle Neck Road and Hillpark Avenue in Great Neck Plaza. The parade then continues up Middle Neck Road to the Village Green in the Village of Great Neck, where a memorial ceremony will be held.

Lots of veterans and public officials and local community groups all come out to march and pay tribute to all of those who have protected all of us and our proud country, the United States of America. It’s a thrill to cheer on all of our marchers and the children will just love to watch all of the pomp and circumstance.

My family, including two really little ones, went to the parade last year and it was wonderful. This is truly an event for all ages and we will be back again this year.

Hope to see you at parade too!
