This year's parade route will be different than in past years and the memorial ceremonies will be held near Village Hall. As usual the Parade will step off from the Hillside Avenue parking lot across from Grayslake Central High School on Lake Street at 9:30 a.m. and travel south on Lake Street and proceed east on Park Avenue rather than Junior Avenue. The memorial ceremonies will take place one block north of Park Avenue near the downtown Clocktower (Millennium Court Veteran's Memorial site) at the corner of Seymour Avenue and Center Street. The ceremonies will be held immediately following the parade. Also be on the lookout for Wilbur, a 1954 fire engine, as he makes his way through Grayslake during the annual Memorial Day parade.
