Brooklyn’s 152nd Annual Kings County Memorial Day Parade will take place on May 27, 11am. It’s the oldest continuous Memorial Day Parade in the Metropolitan Area, and one of the oldest in America. This parade dates back to when Brooklyn was an independent city and the third largest in the country.
Former State Senator Marty Golden was announced as the grand marshal for the parade. The deputy grand marshal is the American Legion, celebrating their 100th anniversary. Special guests are the Veteran Corps of Artillery, Hope for the Warriors, and the 369th Experience.
Sponsored by the United Military Veterans of Kings County.
The parade begins at Third Avenue and 78th Street and ends at John Paul Jones Park at 101st Street and Fourth Avenue, with a memorial service honoring fallen soldiers. The service includes wreath laying, flag raising, taps, a 21-gun salute by the Veteran Corps of Artillery, New York state’s oldest military unit, and a performance from 369th Experience.
