2020 Avon Lake Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony Cancellation

04/15/2020 – As a result of the ongoing public health emergency, the 2020 Avon Lake
Memorial Day parade and ceremony has been cancelled.

The health and welfare of the community is of primary concern. Therefore, in accordance
with the guidance of public health officials and Governor DeWine, the parade and ceremony
have been cancelled. The American Legion (state and federal) have cancelled all events
through August, and Avon Lake's Post 211 must follow course. It is not a decision taken
lightly, but one done with the best interest of the safety of the community.
