SUMMIT, NJ - Summit's residents, friends and family are invited to attend the Annual Memorial Day Parade, starting at 10 a.m. on May 26.  

The morning's activities begin with a parade featuring the American Legion Post 322, Summit Police and Fire Departments, Summit EMS, Scout Troops, Local Organizations and the Summit High School Band.  
The parade begins at Beechwood Road near the Bouras Building.  It then proceeds down Beechwood Road to Springfield Avenue where it will turn towards Maple Street and onto the Village Green.  
 
Once the parade reaches the Village Green, crowds will gather at the City's Showmobile for music and a short, but moving ceremony.  Veterans will distribute flags to children and various local organizations will march with the parade to show their support for those who died serving our nation.  The Summit Elks Lodge #1246 will provide hot dogs and drinks to those who attend.  
 

Organizations wishing to march in the parade are asked to send their intent to mcaputo@cityofsummit.org.  The parade and ceremony will be held rain or shine.

The Mayor's Fourth of July and Celebration Committee is the official sponsor for the event.  This year, a special program has been added to the weekend's observances.  A showing of the movie "Taking Chance" will be shown on the large screen on Summit's Village Green on May 25, at 8 p.m.  
 
"Taking Chance" is a moving HBO film featuring Kevin Bacon.  The film is intended for mature audiences, teens, and young adults.  It is a story of a volunteer who escorts fallen heroes home after paying the ultimate sacrifice.  This film was selected by the American Legion to pay tribute to the fallen of all generations.  A special recognition of the local group, Bonds of Courage, will take place prior to the film.  A rain date of the following evening, May 26, has been set.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and lawn chair.  Refreshments are also welcome.
