Since moving to Marblehead in May 2008, my family and I have attended every single Memorial Day parade and have been awed by the patriotism to be found in our small New England town.  This year, the Marblehead Memorial Day parade has been cancelled due to rain but there will be a ceremony to remember all those who served at Abbot Hall at 10:00am.

Between the sound of Glover’s regiment firing a salute and the sight of American flags adorning gravestones at Waterside cemetery and elsewhere, Marblehead puts its patriotism on full display.
