ALBANY N.Y. – In observance of Memorial Day there will be many events in Albany, including the annual parade, to honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and to thank those who currently serve.
The Albany parade will kickoff at 9:30 Monday morning at the intersection of Partridge Street and Central Avenue, and will travel through the city coming to an end at North Hawk Street just east of the state capitol building.
In addition to the parade there will be a ceremony, Albany's Bishop Edward Scharfenberger will be honoring veterans at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery on Central Avenue. Local veterans, including those who served in the Vietnam War are to attend.
These events are two long-standing traditions in Albany.
