Memorial Day Parade Set for May 28th
We hope your Memorial Day plans include a visit to the War Memorial Center. It’s the perfect place to watch the 153rd annual Memorial Day Parade, which steps off at 2:00 p.m. from 4th and Wisconsin and ends at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, just north of the WMC.
This year’s parade will honor the Zablocki VA Medical Center and its employees.
Immediately following the parade, there will be a wreath laying ceremony in WMC’s Veterans Courtyard and a brick dedication ceremony for the Southeast Wisconsin Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
On May 6, the Stark family (pictured right) visited the War Memorial Center for a special presentation of the certificates for the memorial bricks that will be placed there. These Stark family members – and all those who ordered bricks over the past year – will be honored during this ceremony.
At 4:00 p.m. the Milwaukee Metropolitan Community Concert Band will perform in Memorial Hall on the third floor of the WMC.
