Neighbors are gathering to honor those who defend our freedom with a parade, ceremony and celebration tomorrow morning.
The annual event is organized by Sheepshead Bay / Plumb Beach Civic Association. Plans include a parade of classic and antique cars, color guard, wreath ceremony, children’s essay and poster contest, invocation and refreshments.
Observers will begin lining up at 11 a.m. on Emmons Avenue at East 23rd Street. The parade kicks off at noon, and the route continues down the avenue until it reaches the Plumb Beach / Sheepshead Bay Veterans Memorial near Haring Street. There, organizers will hold a ceremony and give out special awards to children from our neighborhood schools.
For more information, call (718) 891-6498 or (718) 891-8400.
