This year we are inviting children to decorate their bicycles (helmets mandatory), wagons and scooters with colorful red, white and blue streamers and to ride in the parade in honor of our veterans. There will be prizes for the best decorations in the 7 years old and under category and for those over 7 years old.

There will be fire trucks, bands and horses and everyone is invited to march in honor of our veterans. Bring your children, your parents, your grandparents, your aunts and uncles and your pets (on a leash please) to help us celebrate our veterans on this day of remembrance. 

In the event of rain, the parade will be canceled, but the ceremony honoring our veterans will go on across the street at the Firehouse 1 at 10 AM.

Calling All Veterans
The 2021 Harding Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 30th will honor all U.S. veterans. We would like all veterans to attend and identify themselves so that they may be recognized for their
service to our Country. It is our intent to provide transportation for all veterans during the parade portion of our celebration and then ask veterans to identify themselves from the podium with the branch and unit in which they served and the dates of their service so that they can be individually recognized for their service.
Your service exemplifies the spirit of Harding’s volunteerism and is a tremendous example to all. Please contact us at HTCA@mail.com to let us know that you will participate so that we can provide transportation for the parade. We encourage all veterans to participate.
