Annual Beaufort Memorial Day Parade And Ceremony
The annual Beaufort Memorial Day Parade is back, scheduled for Monday, May 29th at 10am.
The parade will follow the traditional route along Boundary Street from Rogers Street, onto Carteret Street, Bay Street and then back to Rogers Street ending at the Beaufort National Cemetery.
At noon, a ceremony to commemorate all those in the military who lost their lives in service to our Country will be held at the Beaufort National Ceremony with a keynote speaker.
Memorial Day is for honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military fighting for our liberty and freedom.
It’s not a day for celebrating. It’s a day for remembering.
Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.
All are encouraged to come to Beaufort’s Memorial Day parade and honor those that have fallen for our Country.
If you are interested in participating, please call 843-263-4620.
