The Royal Oak Memorial Day Parade has been held on Memorial Day for several decades as a respectful tribute to our veterans - past and present.

Planning Planning for the parade is a year round task. The committee meets monthly and strives to improve the parade each year, while maintaining the high standards that are expected of such a premier event dedicated to honoring our veterans so that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

One of the committee's primary goals is to reach out to veterans of all ages and to those who wish to show their respect to our veterans.

This is one of the most prestigious parades held in Michigan and the high standards of this parade have held true for decades. By reaching out to the younger generations and teaching them why we need to continue to honor our veterans with respect and dignity, the committee is dedicated to keeping this a solemn event for generations to come.

If you have questions regarding the parade, please contact David London at or call 248-506-0737.
