Memorial Day 2019

May 26, 2019


On Memorial Day, May 27, we will pay tribute to our fallen heroes and their families by participating in the Memorial Day Parade. If you haven't yet walked in a parade with McLean County Democrats, now's your chance! We'll be handing out flags along the parade route, which is always fun!

Here's what you need to know:

Lineup begins on Front Street near the Law and Justice Center. Participants can walk in the parade or ride on the flatbed. Please bring a folding chair if sitting on the flatbed.

Parade kick off, concluding at Miller Park


Memorial Day service at the band stand in Miller Park

10:30-11:00am (time approximate, after the conclusion of the Memorial Day service)
We will have our Memorial Day potluck picnic! The Dems will provide pulled pork, and the rest is pitch-in. Please sign up for a dish to bring! Dems will likely be at the shelter next to the stage. Look for our banner! You are welcome to drop off items before the parade or bring after.
