WAUCONDA MEMORIAL DAY PARADE
A small town parade with a big heart.

May 25, 2015
Staging: 9 AM
Starting: 10 AM

Celebrating more than 60 years, the Wauconda Memorial Day Parade travels along Main Street where families line the street hours before the parade begins. The parade ends at Memorial Park where there is an American Legion ceremony honoring the veterans.

The 2014 parade Grand Marshall and keynote speaker for the American Legion ceremony is General Zerbonia, Land Forces Component Commander for the Army Guard. Brigadier General Zerbonia received the appointment as the Land Forces Component Commander for the Illinois Army National Guard on June 3, 2013. His previous assignment was as the commander of the Bilateral Embedded Staff Team A10 and as the deputy brigade commander for the Polish 12th Mechanized Brigade in Ghazni Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. General Zerbonia has more than 30 years of military service.

We are planning a flyover of vintage World War II planes three T-6 Texans.
