NEWTON — As a result of last year’s success, Newton Recreation is organizing another rolling parade for Memorial Day. Vehicles from Police, Fire, and the Highway Departments, as well as classic cars and motorcycles, will be part of the parade. Organizations are encouraged to sign up to participate with a vehicle display of appropriate banners or flags.

The slow-moving vehicle-only parade will start rolling at 10:00 a.m. on Mon., May 31, from the Safety Complex at 8 Merrimac Road. The parade route will cover many of the major roads in town. A detailed map of the route will be published soon. It will end at the Whittier Street cemetery, where a short honors ceremony will be held.

Participants and observers are asked to respect social distancing and wear masks when social distancing is not possible.
