The Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony allows us to come together as a community to remember those who have given their lives in service to our country and to honor our veterans.
The parade steps off at 6th St. and Main St. and continues to Riverside Ave. Following the parade, there will be a memorial service at the Freedom Shrine behind the Police Station, 211 N. Riverside Ave.

A special memorial service will immediately follow the parade at the Freedom Shrine along the river, west of the St. Charles Police Department, 211 N. Riverside Ave. In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held inside the St. Charles Fire Station 1, at 112 N. Riverside Ave.
The Memorial Service is led by Event Coordinator Lt. Colonel Mark Powell, (Ret). and will include Mayor Ray Rogina reading the Annual Proclamation, a Keynote Address from Colonel Jake Wyatt (Ret), and “Taps” played by resident Kevin Gaffney and his daughter Kacie, a senior at St Charles East High School.
