Memorial Day Parade

Saturday, May 28th at 10:30 AM

Show your Patriotism and honor our veterans while watching them march in this year's Memorial Day Parade. The parade route will be starting at the Woodstock Elementary School and go towards The Green to Elm Street, stopping at the Iron Bridge for a wreath toss, then proceeding to the River Street Cementary and across the Middle Covered Bridge ending at the Woodstock Courthouse. An address will be made and a military gun salute, in front of the Courthouse. This year Woodstock's Girl Scouts Troop 60419 will be joining the parade. 

After the parade, enjoy an ice cream cone at Woodstock Scoops or lunch not far from the village at Mountain Creamery's new location! The White Cottage is now open for the season as well, so many places to shop and enjoy a meal here in Woodstock, Vermont we hope to see you.
