Please check danversma.gov for updates in the case of inclement weather
The Annual Danvers Memorial Day parade will take place this year on Monday, May 29, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Donald M. Gould, will be this year’s Grand Marshal. Due to his sudden passing, his children Charles Gould and Susan McGrath will be riding in his memory. The Danvers Veterans Council is honored to designate him as Grand Marshal posthumously. He was chosen because of his extensive service to Operation Troop Support and his unwavering patriotism.
All Danvers veterans are invited to march in the parade in their civilian capacity. For those unable to march, a trolley will be available at Town Hall and is handicapped accessible.
The parade will start from the Town Hall at 9:00 a.m. sharp on Monday, May 29, and will follow the traditional route of previous years. Stops and placement of wreaths will be at the Porter Cemetery on High Street, Lane Parkway and the Memorial Flag Pole in Danvers Square. A reviewing stand will be at the corner of Elm and Essex Streets.
The Memorial Day Exercise at Town Hall will commence at approximately 10:00 a.m. upon parade completion. The Danvers High School Marching Band and Chamber Singers will perform. Guest speaker will be Richard B. Trask, Town Archivist. The public is invited to attend this ceremony honoring all veterans.
