Brookfield’s annual Memorial Day Parade is set for Sunday, May 25, starting at 2 p.m. at the memorial at the entrance to Williams Park (across from Brookfield Library).
The event will begin with a brief memorial service with the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) Color Guard and town officials before the parade commences.
The parade will go along Whisconier Road, from Williams Park south to the Brookfield Museum and Historical Society, at the intersection with Route 133.
Organizations marching this year include Celtic Cross Pipe and Drums, Danbury Drum Corp, The Young Colonials, Brookfield school marching bands and the Army National Guard, as well as other civic groups and community organizations.
As usual, the annual Strawberry Festival will be waiting for the parade convoy and bystanders at the Historical Society. There will be music and other entertainment, as well as the obligatory strawberry shortcake.
Brookfield Boy Scouts will also have a booth set up selling hamburgers and hotdogs near the end of the route.
