Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the traditional Town of Danvers Memorial Day Parade and Town Hall Ceremony will not take place this year. However, there will be two events occurring to honor veterans.
At 9 a.m. there will be a Rolling Caravan of Police Units, Fire Apparatus and Military Vehicles followed by a Virtual Memorial Day Ceremony on Danvers Community Access Television at 10 a.m. and later at 6 p.m. Channel 99 on Comcast and Channel 36 on Verizon. The program will also be broadcast on DCAT’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
The rolling caravan will begin on Sylvan St. at Town Hall at 9 a.m. The route will be slightly altered to allow the public more available parking in town parking lots and along main roads to view. The rolling caravan will make its customary passes by the Porter Cemetery on High St and the Downtown Memorial Flag Pole.
The public is encouraged to come out to support and recognize our service members, but all social distancing guidelines must be followed. There will be no gathering or ceremony at Town Hall before or after the caravan.
- Residents are encouraged to watch from their property or utilize public parking lots and street parking along the route.
- Residents in public places, where social distancing is not possible, must follow the mandated state guidelines by wearing a mask or face covering.
