The parade follows the traditional Memorial Day parade route, stepping off at G.H. Robertson School, 227 Cross Street, traveling down past Patriots Park to the intersection of Main Street (Rt. 31) and heading south on Main Street, ending near the site of the old Public Works garage on Bradbury Lane. A VIP reviewing stand and media access point will be on the grounds of First Congregational Church, 1171 Main Street, as well as a hospitality area where people can get literature and information about area activities and businesses. Stretch the Clown and roving children’s entertainment will be near the Memorial Green. A military fly-over is also planned. Restrooms will be available at Patriots Park and G.H. Robertson School.
