The 33rd annual Fulton Memorial Day Salute celebration on Saturday, May 24 will be held at the Fulton Community Center on West Broadway.
As in the past years, the event will feature the biggest and the best Saturday morning parade, local music groups, a great food court, drinks, rides and fireworks. All entertainment is offered free to the public.
The theme is “SHOWING GRATITUDE TO OUR VETERANS.” Jim Weinhold, honored 2014 Veteran of the Year, will serve as the Grand Marshal of the Saturday parade.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. and will feature about 10 bands, including the City of Syracuse Highland Pipe Band, The Central New York Fire and Police Band, The Island Band, the Central Square Middle School Marching Band, The Original Yanks Drum & Bugle Corp and Naples High School Marching Band.
At noon, parade bands will be featured in the Community Center on the Fulton Savings Bank Stage. Awards will be given for winning parade entries.
At 2 p.m., on the Fulton Savings Bank Stage, CNY Arts Center will entertain children and adults alike with a talent show. At 4, Brass Exchange, a high energy horn band, will round out a not-to-be missed Saturday afternoon. At 7, Memorial Day Salute presents “The Custom Taylor Band,” Central New York’s premier Top 40 country music band, on our stage. The evening concludes with fireworks over the lake at 9:30.
