Manchester Township and the Department of Recreation are proud to announce that the annual Memorial Day Parade has been scheduled for Monday, May 29, at World War II Memorial Park in Whiting.

Marchers will begin their journey to the Memorial, located at Lake Road, at 10 a.m. from the intersection of Monroe Avenue and Bayonne Avenue. Once the parade reaches the Memorial, guest speakers will offer remarks commemorating the day.

Parade participants will gather at 9:15 a.m. at Monroe Avenue and Bayonne Avenue. Groups are invited to march in the parade. The Township also welcomes all to place wreaths or flowers at the Memorial. Any group that would like to place a wreath at the Memorial should call the Department of Recreation at 732-657-8121, ext. 5102 to register.

The tradition continues as Manchester Township invites children to adorn their bicycles with patriotic decorations and take part in the parade. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated bicycles. All children who participate are required to wear a proper bicycle helmet.

We hope to see many of Manchester Township’s residents at this community event honoring those who proudly served our country.
