Memorial Day in Linden
The 70th annual Linden VFW Price Crane Robinsons Post 4642 Memorial Day Services, Parade, and Community Picnic!
The parade steps off at 10:00 AM, starting in front of the VFW Post, where it then proceeds to the Bridge over the Shiawassee River. Services are held there for those who have serves at sea. The parade proceeds down Broad St. to the Veterans Memorial in Fairview Cemetery, where a VFW Memorial Day ritual service will be held.
After the ceremony at the Cemetery, the parade will return to the VFW Post, where the City of Linden hosts a Community Picnic providing hot dogs, chips, pop, water, and ice cream.
We will be kicking off the Linden Summer Concert Series with a Memorial Day concert beginning at 11am. The concert is held at the Linden Millpond Gazebo. (in the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the VFW Hall). “Icemen” will be playing and entertaining the crowds.
Spectators are encouraged to line the parade route with flags, decorate your bikes, strollers, and wagons and join in as we march to the Cemetery for the services.
All current or former military are invited to march as well.
Please remember that the parade is a Solemn Memorial Day function dedicated to Veterans. Political or Personal recognition signage is not allowed.
Looking forward to a beautiful Memorial Day in downtown Linden, in honor of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
