Fulton’s Memorial Day Salute parade is at 10 a.m. Saturday May 24.

The route is the same as it has been for the past 32 years.

The formation of the parade is in the former Nestle parking lot and adjacent streets. The parade then starts north on South Fourth Street by Lyons Street to pass by the Oswego Health facility and the Michaud Nursing Home so residents who are able to get outside or to their window can see the parade.

The parade proceeds north to Broadway and then west to Recreation Park. The reviewing stand will be positioned at West Broadway and West Third Street, in front of Brewer and Brewer’s Mobil Station.

Typically, thousands will line the parade route.
