Freedom Parade

This year’s honor float in the Freedom Parade pays tribute to our men and women who have served.  Come watch the Romulus Girl Scouts come together to carry a large flag down main street in honor of all military men and women who have served and are still serving.  We welcome anyone who would like to join us in this great opportunity.

A float by Girl Ccout Troop 60562 will honor all veterans.  Any Vet who would like to ride on the float is invited to call Sarah Smolinski at 315-745-9928 or Nicole Hunsberger at 315-719-5247.

Veterans will follow in cars, motorcycles and especially buses from the VA hospital in Canandaigua.  Those who want to drive their own cars must have at least three people in the vehicle.  Following the parade, vets will be hosted at a chicken barbecue lunch at the VFW.  Please RSVP to Karen Lewis at 315-651-9513 to allow the VFW to plan for enough food.

Groups that have been in the parade before, know what fun it can be.  Once again, there will be divisions for military and officials; youth organizations, schools and families; churches, senior citizens and organizations; and vehicles.  The Civil War and American Revolutionary War re-enactors will have a “parade within a parade.” Watch for special “dignitaries” in this year’s parade including US President Abe Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman.  The very popular Hit Men Brass Band will join Downbeat Percussion, Mighty St. Joe’s Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps, the Waterloo Central School Band and the Finger Lakes Pipes & Drums in the lineup this year.

Bring your chair and wave a flag to honor our vets and community stars!
