Memorial Day Parade

Event Information

Sterling Heights' 44th Annual Memorial Day activities begin promptly at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 29 in the City Center Courtyard between City Hall (40555 Utica Road) and the Police Department as hundreds gather for a solemn tribute to all veterans who died in the line of duty.

This year's theme is "Victory through Unity" and will feature an exciting, first-ever Tuskegee Airmen Flyover using Authentic WWII Tuskegee airplanes sponsored by BAE Systems and DC3S. The ceremony will feature remarks from our 2023 Grand Marshal, US Army Veteran Larry Sargent, Vice President of the Tuskegee Airmen National Museum; Mayor Michael C. Taylor; and Arts Commission Chairperson Jeanne Schabath-Lewis. 

At 10 a.m. the parade kicks off from the City Center parking lot, and will travel south down Dodge Park Road.
