Memorial Day Parades – Kent and Ottawa County
Here it's Memorial Day Weekend. Many people view it as an extra day off, a day to grill, a day to have fun in the pool. But remember the true reason of Memorial Day, which is to remember - and give thanks for - the men and women who died serving their country in the Armed Forces.
To remember and respect, there are several parades around West Michigan. This is just a partial list that includes Kent and Ottawa County:
- Caledonia: Noon - Parade starting at Main Street and Kinsey Street
