The Village of Winthrop Harbor will once again host a Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 30, 2016 in honor of the fallen men and women of our United States military. This annual event is organized together with the Winthrop Harbor Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) post.

We invite you to participate in this year’s parade with your float, band, marching group or other entry. The parade line-up will be at 10:00 a.m. at the Pfeiffer Transmission parking lot on the corner of Sheridan Road and State Line Road in Winthrop Harbor. The parade will begin at 11:00 a.m., proceeding south on Sheridan Road to 9th Street, then west on 9th Street to Village Park. At the park there will be a Memorial service presented by the Winthrop Harbor VFW at 12:00 Noon.

The Village invites any groups that would like to participate in the parade, even if it is just to walk with us. The general theme of all parade entries should be to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom.

On-line registration is quick and easy at the village web site, (Click to the "Coming Events" page) You may also register by mail, FAX or in-person using the form below. There is no-charge to participate in the parade.

We look forward to this day being a successful remembrance of all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our Country. Whether you participate in the parade or join your friends and neighbors street-side to watch, we look forward to seeing you on Monday, May 30th.
