There is nothing more local or more "Our-Townish" than a Memorial Day Parade. This year we visited the University Heights Parade, directed by Anita Kazarian.
Notably, every time a military group, a flag or any reference to the troops passed by, the crowds went wild. All of the units were well received, but the patriotism shown by the viewers was inspiring.
There were two pipe bands (North Coast and Cleveland Kiltie) along with the Daughters of the Nile Drill Team, assorted nostalgic units (Euclid Beach memorabilia etc), Wiley Middle School Band, Japanese drummers, even NASA was represented.
Children and adults alike waved their flags, smiled and cheered on all of the units.
A good old-fashioned time was had by all. Congratulations to Anita Kazarian and her team. Enjoy these pictures from the Parade.
