Stepping off from Frost Lane and proceeding along Central Avenue through Cedarhurst, the Lawrence-Cedarhurst Memorial Day Parade on Sunday was the first of three in the Five Towns.

Veterans from the Lawrence-Cedarhurst American Legion Post 339, the Lawrence High School Color Guard, marching band and cheerleaders, Girl Scout Troop 720, Hatzalah of the Rockaways and Nassau, antique and exotic cars and Aviation High School’s Air Force Junior Officer Training Corps and a mariachi band were among the participants.

All marched to Andrew J. Parise Cedarhurst Park for a memorial service.

Memorial Day honors all the United States military personnel who died in service to the country.
