COLLEGEVILLE PA – Big-time, small town parades are one of summer’s most wonderful traditions! It’s where Main Street comes alive and American pride is worn on the sleeves of its residents. It’s where Collegeville area families, friends and neighbors come together in a shared sense of community, reflection and celebration. And it is where together we honor those who died serving our country, and show our appreciation to our local veterans, those currently serving in the armed forces, and our police and firefighters.
This year’s parade will be on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, 2014, and will start at 10 a.m. The theme of the parade is “Historic Heroes,” and parade groups will be portraying well- or little-known military leaders through their floats and displays.
