Bright sunshine warmed the annual Old Greenwich Memorial Day parade on Monday, as parade-goers of all ages lined Sound Beach Ave, applauding veterans and scrambling for generous amounts of candy that parade marchers tossed into the crowds.
Volunteer firefighters, policemen, Scouts and many other excited marchers came to show their support.
Residents arrived early to pick their spot along Sound Beach Avenue for an up-close view of parade participants.
After the parade, a ceremony was held in Binney Park to honor veterans for their service, and remember all those who sacrificed their lives to preserve our freedom.
