Memorial Day Services | Bradford County Itineraries
Memorial Day is Monday, May 29, with service events to take place locally.
For Canton, residents are encouraged to attend a Memorial Day parade to remember and honor those that sacrificed everything. The parade will begin at Canton Church of Christ at 10:00 a.m. and will follow the normal parade route to the War Memorial Park, where another service will take place.
Those wishing to be in the parade with Lighthouse Church are encouraged to decorate and ride their bikes in the parade to show support for local veterans.
In Troy, the Memorial Day parade begins at 9 a.m. at Croman Elementary School and will proceed down Canton Street to Davison Green for music and services.
Citizens who watch are encouraged to “step off the curb” and line the roadway with family and eventually join the parade to follow them to Davison Green. This has been a long time tradition of the Troy Community.
The Troy Vets Club and VFW asks that the public observe the following etiquette rules while viewing the parade.
As the US flag carried by our Honor Guard passes your position on the parade route, please observe the following parade etiquette rules:
• Make sure you are standing.
• If you are wearing a hat, remove it.
• Cover your heart with your right hand (military members should give a military salute).
• Temporarily stop conversations as the flag passes.
• Non-US citizens should stand quietly.
There may be many US flags in the parade, you do not need to salute them all. Please respect our honor guard as they carry the US flag in this year’s parade. Please stand and salute.
