The Annual Woodstock Memorial Day Parade will be held at noon, Monday May 29. Assembly for Units participating will be at 11 a.m. at the Woodstock Playhouse parking grounds.
The Parade kicks off at noon and proceeds up Mill Hill Road to Rock City Road and stops for a Ceremony at the Woodstock Cemetery.
Then the Parade reforms down Rock City Road to Tinker Street, continuing through the hamlet to its Neher Street end.
Anyone interested in participating in the parade must first be cleared by the American Legion Parade Coordinator. The Parade Coordinator will arrange the lineup and line march. All parade participants are invited to the post for refreshments at the conclusion of the parade.
