The North Carolina Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony in Thomasville is the largest in the Southeastern U.S.
The Grand Marshal of the parade will be BG Scottie Carpenter.
The day begins with a Memorial Service at the Vietnam Memorial Wall on I-85 at 8:30 AM and continues uptown with interviews and music at The Bandstand at 9 AM. Then, the parade kicks off at 10 AM at the Big Chair at the Corner of Main & Salem with 100 American flags in formation, followed by the military bands, military vehicles and equipment and many veteran groups, as well as the families of the fallen who will be honored. The parade proceeds to Cushwa Stadium where speeches will be made by dignitaries, wreaths will be placed to honor the dead and parachutists make their way into the stadium with plaques for the families.
Don't miss this day of honor and patriotism as we commemorate the lives of those who gave all.
