Piqua Memorial Day Parade to be held

PIQUA — The Piqua Memorial Day Parade will follow a slightly different course this year. Due to traffic concerns in the past, the parade will assemble on Monday, May 30, at the Piqua Central Intermediate School, 807 Nicklin Ave.

Parade line-up will be at the intermediate school at the corner of Park Avenue and Nicklin Avenue from 8-8:45 p.m. Beginning at 9 a.m., participants will follow Park Avenue west to Washington Avenue, then North to the Veterans’ Memorial at 1701 Washington Ave. The Memorial Day ceremony will be held at that location at 10 a.m. following the parade.

Anyone interested in participating in the parade should contact Parade Chairman Bruce Hogston at (937) 773-9324. All parade participants are asked to include the American flag in their entry, and to remember that the intent of the Memorial Day Parade is to commemorate those who have given their lives for the liberty of all citizens.
