Photos: Memorial Day Parade rolls down Monroe Turnpike

MONROE, CT — Families lining Monroe Turnpike sat in folding chairs and on beach blankets Sunday afternoon, while cheering on marchers in the town’s first Memorial Day Parade since 2019.

The annual event was canceled due to rain last spring, but this year’s parade, honoring the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, was held under a bright sun and a deep blue sky.

Police officers and a troop from the National Guard led the procession of floats, politicians, youth and civic groups, sports leagues, school groups, Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Services personnel, CERT volunteers and firefighters from the Monroe, Stepney and Stevenson companies.
