Palmyra’s Flag Day Parade is back this year, and so is the Flag Day Cruise.
For the second year in a row, the Palmyra Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a Flag Day Cruise, but it will occur after traditional parade which returns after being replaced by the cruise last year in order to provide more safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
And, the cruise turned out to be a big hit.
“The cruise seemed to be well received last year, so we thought we would continue,” said Nancy Goellner, the event’s organizer.
The parade will take place Saturday, June 12, at 6 p.m.
“We would like to include the Missouri Bicentennial celebration in the parade,” Goellner said, noting that entries are needed.
“Pets are welcome including horses and mules,” Goellner said, as are bicentennial costumes.
Animal waste must be cleaned up.
Everyone is also asked to post an American flag on their entry.
“All are encouraged to cruise Main Street after the parade to help celebrate,” Goellner said.
After the parade, the American Legion and local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will present a flag raising ceremony at the courthouse. David Wilson will provide special music.
Businesses, organizations, clubs, individuals are all welcome to participate. Pets, horses, mules are welcome also.
Line up for the parade will begin at 5 p.m. in the south PHS parking lot.
