Memorial Day Parade

Hanover's Memorial Day Parade is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM at Saint Mary's Church and end at the Veterans Memorial. The parade route includes remembrances at the Hanover Center Cemetery, Hanover Town Hall, and the Sylvester School World War II Memorial. Parking is available at the Veterans Memorial, located next to B. Everett Hall Field, Saint Mary's Church, and Center School.

Once at the cemetery, we will honor and memorialize various Veteran plots, including the Josselyn and Cummings World War I soldiers, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the police and fire deceased, the American Legion, and Veterans of Foreign Wars memorials.

Following, the parade will march toward the Civil War Memorial (by the cannons across from Town Hall). There, we will memorialize the Civil War as well as the Korean, Vietnam, and World War II veterans.

The parade will then march to the Sylvester School building to memorialize World War I soldiers and then end at the Hanover Veterans Memorial.

Please note that aspects of this parade are subject to change at a moment's notice, weather dependent.

Hanover's Memorial Day Ceremony will begin at the Veterans' Memorial at the conclusion of the Memorial Day Parade. The ceremony includes an opening prayer, remarks from our Veterans, and a roll call during the laying of a wreath. The memorial is located at 495 Hanover Street, Hanover, MA, next to the B. Everett Hall Field.
