Downtown Gainesville, Good Works, Things to do

Honor Local Vets Memorial Day Parade

The Paul E Bolding American Legion Post # 7 invite you to join them at the 10th Annual Gainesville Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29, 2017 at 10:00am. They will be honoring the U.S. Service Members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service to their country.

Start the holiday by honoring those who sacrificed their lives for our country while in active military service. Bring friends and family to this patriotic event on Green Street and enjoy clowns, marching bands, parade floats, dignitaries and more!
