Matawan's Memorial Day Parade Begins 2 pm Sunday 30 May 2010

This year's Memorial Day Parade in Matawan begins at St Clement's at 2 pm. The parade route follows Main Street across Route 34 to Memorial Park at the corner of Main and Broad Streets. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the parade. I usually find a comfortable seat in the grass across the street from the Quick Chek so I can pick up a snack. It takes a while for the parade to get there, but I'm in the right spot for end of parade festivities. There are usually a few speeches delivered in the park at the end of the parade. Plus, for those interested, the MRHS marching band director traditionally announces the next year's drum major to the band members at the end of the parade.
