Threat of Rain for Memorial Day Parade

UPDATE Westport town officials announced early Monday that this year’s traditional Memorial Day parade has been canceled due to rain. WestportNow.com Image

Instead, there will be a 10 a.m. ceremony in the Town Hall auditorium—just as there was in 2011, the last time the parade was canceled due to weather.

Meanwhile, the Westport Fire Department will hold its own memorial service at 8 a.m. at Fire Headquarters, 515 Post Road East.

This is only the fifth time in the now 46-year tenure of parade organizer Bill Vornkhal that the Memorial Day parade has been canceled.
