The City of Lamberville annual Memorial Day Parade is scheduled to take place on Monday starting at 9 a.m.

The parade will commence at the intersection of North Union and Cherry Streets. From there, the procession will proceed south on Union Street, cross Bridge Street onto Mount Hope Street, and then head north on Main Street until reaching York Street. The parade will culminate at Mary Sheridan Park.

There will be veterans, emergency responders, and local groups paying tribute to those who have served and perished.

A commemorative ceremony will be held after the parade at Mary Sheridan Park.

Mayor Andrew Nowick, along with city council members, will lead the ceremony. The event will also feature a guest speaker.

Immediately following the ceremony, the community has been invited to the annual picnic at the American Legion post.

In Solebury Township, Washington Crossing Historic Park will hold a Memorial Day observation at 1638 River Road on Sunday at 1 p.m.

There observation will feature colonial color guard, a fife and drum corps, Revolutionary War reenactors, veterans, and other honored guests. During the ceremony, American flags will be placed on all of the graves.

“The gravesite itself holds a special place in the hearts of history enthusiasts and serves as a testament to the soldiers who perished during the Continental army’s December 1776 encampment in Bucks County. Although the Delaware River crossing and the First Battle of Trenton resulted in no American casualties, a number of soldiers succumbed to exposure, disease, or prior injuries. Notably, the plot contains the resting place of Captain-Lieutenant Moore, the only veteran whose identity has been confirmed,” the park said.
