Memorial Day parade returns to Commerce City

Posted

The state's biggest Memorial Day parade returns to Commerce City this year after a COVID-caused absence. It's the 56th edition this year, and it starts at 9:30 a.m. Monday, May 30. Participation and admission along the 1.5-mile route is free.

A city statement said the city’s parade honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the ation, along with local military veterans for their service to the country. The statement also noted that the event appeals not only to veterans, but also families and community members from throughout Commerce City and the region.

The staging area is near East 64th Avenue and Olive Street. The line of march begins at East 64th Avenue and Newport Street and continues west to Holly Street, then turns south to East 62nd Avenue. From there, the parade loops around the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center before ending at East 60th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard.

Before the parade begins, city staff hosts a Memorial Day ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park.
