Labor Day Parade 2022 – The annual Labor Day parade and ceremony will take place on Monday, May 31 at 10 a.m., according to the City of Summit. The parade will start at 25 Deforest Ave. and end at the Village Green. The parade honors those men and women who died in military service to our country, from the American Revolution to current conflicts.
The Summit Fourth of July Celebration Committee is organizing the parade, which will be led by members of the Summit American Legion Post 322. Summit civic and school groups are encouraged to march alongside veterans. Summit High School’s marching band, the Summit Police Department, the Summit Fire Department, the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad, and scout troops will all march in the parade.
Spectators are encouraged to congregate on Deforest Avenue, Beechwood Road, Union Place, and Maple Street as they make their way to the Village Green. Marchers along the route will hand out flags to the crowd. Veterans who are unable to march may request a ride in the parade; please meet members of the American Legion at the parade’s start at 25 Deforest Avenue to make your request.
The Summit High School marching band will perform music at the ceremony on the Village Green, as well as a rifle salute and wreath-laying, and a special rendition of “taps.” Summit Mayor Nora Rudest will present a Summit Veteran Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be followed by readings from local students.
Veterans who have participated in Summit’s Hometown Heroes programmer will also be recognized during the ceremony. In recognition and appreciation for their service, all veterans who attend the ceremony will receive a 2022 commemorative coin.
