Bristol & Forestville Memorial Day Parades Canceled

This year’s 2017 Forestville Memorial Day Tribute Parade unfortunately has been canceled due to the forecasted weather. After speaking to a number of our participants and the unavoidable rainy forecast, this course of action was necessary.

The Memorial Day Bristol parade has also been canceled on Monday. A service will be held at the American Legion 9:30 am Monday

Many of our entrees have very expensive uniforms and equipment. We have an electrical supply for our reviewing stand which powers our PA system, Nutmeg TV and this year’s (2) Emcees.

We also have (3) horses to consider, with their traction, on a potentially wet pavement.

The vast majority of our parade participants are children. Due to these factors, and more, any precipitation, even light, threatens the parade. This is the 2nd year in a row that the weather has caused the cancelation of our parade.

With that being said it certainly has caused alot of disappointment from the public to the participants, and the committee who has spend so much time and effort preparing. Even though rain is in the forecast tomorrow the parade committee wishes you a great day.

Whatever your plans are tomorrow, let us never forget those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country, and let us never forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.

The Memorial Day Bristol parade has also been canceled on Monday. A service will be held at the American Legion 9:30 am Monday

COVINGTON, Tenn. — Like many other people, Micky Thornton just wanted a backyard pool for his family when he moved to Covington, a small town north of Memphis, in 1992.
