From Morris Plains Memorial Day Parade Chairman Steve Welsh:

On Saturday, May 25, 2024, at 9 a.m., the Borough of Morris Plains will hold its annual

Memorial Day service at Roberts Garden at the corner of Glenbrook Road and Mountain Way.

The traditional memorial service, conducted by members of the Morris Plains VFW Watnong Post #3401 and Denville American Legion Post 390, will be followed by comments from our

special guest speaker, Jack Haren from American Legion Post 59 of Morristown.

Then at 9:30 a.m, the 38th Annual Memorial Day Parade will start near the intersection of Glenbrook Road and Mountain Way.

The parade travels south on Mountain Way, east on Rosedale Avenue, then north along Speedwell Avenue, past the reviewing stand at the corner of Franklin Place, opposite the railroad station, and continues north up Littleton Road to Route 53 north, where it ends at the VFW Watnong Post #3401.

In 2024, our Grand Marshals are Gary and Marcia Windt, longtime Parade Committee

volunteers. They are joined by their son, Major Gary (Skip) Windt, and their daughter and son-in-law, Katie and TJ Fitzpatrick, in the Kafka Farms Carriage.

The parade, the largest in Morris County, consists of 100 units representing local and county organizations, with 15 bands, including the Orange High School Marching Tornadoes Band, the Salaam Shrine Temple Oriental Band, the Rory O’Moore Pipe Band, the Morris County Police Pipes and Drums, the Denville String Band and, featured at the end of the Parade, the Morristown High School Marching Colonials.

Highlights of the Parade will be an appearance by the Future Marines of RSS Northwest, the

famous “Big Idaho Potato” truck, and the Mega Robot.

Also, once again, The Golden Gup and Lulu will appear and play patriotic tunes while Korean War Veteran Dudley Werner and Mickey and Minnie Mouse accompany them.

After the parade, the public is invited to the VFW for hot dogs and kiddie activities.
