Huge Crowd at Corvallis Memorial Day Parade

The crowd seemed larger than ever at this year’s 94th annual Corvallis Memorial Day Parade Monday.

The cannon blast started the procession that included veterans from past and current conflicts.

There was also a large contingent of politicians (with the primary election coming up in a week). Old and young alike marched down the parade route of Corvallis’s Main Street and turned onto the Woodside Cutoff Road, with the public lining the route all along.

The day started with a fund-raising breakfast for the Corvallis Events Center. Following the parade, Post 91 read the names of veterans buried at the Corvallis Cemetery and then dropped a wreath into the Bitterroot River.

KLYQ was at the parade and recorded a Youtube video of the start of the hour-long extravaganza, including Grand Marshall Frank McCauley in a WWII vintage Jeep.
