Brick's Memorial Day Parade Set for Monday

Will take off from former Foodtown site Monday morning

Brick Township will celebrate Memorial Day as it always does on Monday morning.

The township's annual Memorial Day Parade will kick off at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the former Foodtown store on Route 70.

From there, the parade will march west on Route 70 to Chambers Bridge Road, where it will proceed to the township municipal complex. A memorial ceremony will take place at the complex once all of the marchers have arrived.

Brick Patch will be at the parade, and we'll be sure to post a photo gallery afterwards. Readers are welcome to upload their own photos of the parade as well!

If you like loud parades and some cool floats and fun people. Go to some of the small town parades like Ocean Gate, Pinebeach, Beachwood, I've been lucky to be invited to be in some of those parades by a fire company my friend belongs to down there. The Pine Beach one is small, loud, and features kids in mini cars that I believe they make and decorate themselves. Never saw that before, it was so cute and the kids were having a blast. Ocean Gates is again small, but the whole town shows up along with people from other towns I had a blast working the fire trucks air horn and siren during it, I really like that one. For some, Memorial Day is somber and quiet, for others it's a celebration of not only those that have given, but those that are out there now and a loud parade to me shows support of those serving now. For those retailers Memorial Day is just another sale day, THAT makes me want to PUKE! Won't catch me at any Memorial Day sale, I don't care how cheap they make the products, you will not find me at a Memorial Day Sale! It's disrespectful!

Miss Liberty just shows up she is NOT PAID. Considering the gates are closed before she can even get into the driveway of the town all, I HIGHLY doubt she is ASKED to come. And I don't know where you all sit, but next year sit closer to town hall & you'll hear all the sirens!

1 day a year for about 1.5 hours is not too much of an inconvenience considering we are HONORING our soldiers.

I would love to know what schools don't do the pledge? Brick schools do it every day, my 5th grader's class sings "you're a grand old flag" every morning too.
