On a beautiful Monday morning Floral Park Village residents came out in droves to remember the war veterans who died fighting for their country.
The large crowd lined the route to enjoy the day and watch the parade, which started at the Floral Park American Legion on Elizabeth Street and proceeded east to Plainfield Avenue. The marchers then turned onto Jericho Turnpike and headed west to Tyson Avenue and south to Tulip Avenue.
As grand marshal, 38-year Floral Park resident Patrick Murphy, a past commander of the Floral Park American Legion Post, led Floral Parks annual Memorial Day Parade, which celebrated the heroism of U.S. veterans.
He was followed by the Floral Park Memorial High School Band, the John Lewis Childs School Band and the Floral Park Fire Department Band.
William Corbett, commander of the American Legion post, said Floral Park has held the parade since the Legions inception in 1919.
