On Monday, May 28th at 11:30AM, Huntington’s Memorial Day Parade (hosted by Nathan Hale VFW 1469) served the noble purpose of reminding local residents that the true duty of Americans on this day of reflection and gratitude is to honor, in meaningful remembrance, the many service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The parade route began at the Big H shopping center on New York Avenue. The parade of red, white and blue then traveled north on New York Avenue, and then west on West Carver to Green Street. From there it turned north on Green Street to Main Street. Then turned east on Main Street, passing a reviewing stand, and finally heading toward Stewart Avenue.

The marchers were both young and older - and they all donned their best "Red, White and Blue" for the event to commemorate and honor those that have served our country.
There were also classic cars, fire trucks (from Huntington, Huntington Manor, Cold Spring Harbor, Dix Hills, and Greenlawn), civic organizations, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, marching bands, and a very many flags providing color and helping to raise the patriotic pride of the town - even against the backdrop of an otherwise cool and cloudy day.
