Memorial Day Parade

Amongst the high spirits, barbeques and beer, it is often easy to forget the true purpose of Memorial Day. It is important to remember that it pays homage to the fallen soldiers and veterans of wars past and present. Veterans, families and the general public will once again celebrate Memorial Day at the state capital with a parade, events and a sit-down holiday ceremony at the Colorado Veterans Monument. The day will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a wreath placement at the Monument altar stone by VFW 2461, followed at 10 a.m. by the Memorial Day Parade, and concluded at 11 a.m. with a Memorial Day Tribute to all veterans - in particular those Colorado Heroes killed in action. Please enjoy responsibly and be sure to think about those who continue to fight for our country.
