Memorial Day 2021 promises to be a big day in Dartmouth.

After more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions and cancellations, the Dartmouth Veterans Advisory Board is putting its best foot forward, and is sponsoring a Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 31, 2021.

The parade will start at 9 a.m. from The Landing at the Padanaram Bridge, continue along Elm Street with stops at cemeteries along the route, then continue to the former police station for a larger ceremony honoring those from Dartmouth who have died in defense of this nation.
