The parade permit was approved and we are again moving forward with the planning for the 2021 Eastpointe Memorial Day Parade!
With the challenges of the pandemic and the new route/staging area, please be sure to fill out and send in your form today! Please do not assume that just because you have participated in past years we will just know you are coming this year. We are working to update the parade database.
The parade will be Memorial Day, Monday, May 31st at 11 am. Staging will be at 10 am.
Exact staging locations and information will be sent out at a later date.
There will be a few changes this year:
New route: The parade will start at the military museum 16600 Stephens (Stephens & Gratiot) and end at Spindler Park (Stephens & I94) the route is just slightly longer than the old one.
Due to the uncertainties of the pandemic, we are not planning a ceremony at the end of this year’s parade. To borrow a phrase from our Air Force friends, the parade will be “turn and burn”. Hopefully we can bring back the ceremony and picnic in 2022.
We will give out awards as in the past, winners will be announced & contacted after the parade, trophies can be picked up at the museum.
Since this is the 30th Anniversary of Desert Shield / Desert Storm, this year’s parade theme will be to remember the 9 Michigan service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in that conflict.
