Ebensburg – In order to continue the tradition of celebrating and honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans, organizers of Ebensburg’s annual Memorial Day Parade have made some adjustments to this year’s activities. Because of the current restrictions on public gatherings, Ebensburg’s traditional ceremony in the park has been canceled. However, plans are still underway to host a roving parade that will travel the streets of Ebensburg so that residents may still participate from their front yards, porches or even from their windows. Residents whose homes are not along the route are encouraged to walk to the end of their blocks and to maintain social distancing with friends and neighbors.

The parade will be held on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25th at 10 am. Organizers have finalized a route to best accommodate participating emergency vehicles, and include as many areas of town as possible. Staging will begin at 9 am at Admiral Peary Vo-Tech, with the parade starting on West Highland Avenue at 10 am. From there the route will be as follows:

Highland Avenue to Caroline Street

Caroline Street to Horner Street

Horner Street to West Street

West Street to Crawford Street

Crawford Street to Phaney Street

Phaney Street to Sample Street

Sample Street to Truman Street

Truman Street to High Street

High Street to Rowena Drive

Any first responder vehicles, military service men and women, classic vehicle owners, businesses and organizations are encouraged to participate and are asked to contact the Borough office at 472-8414 to let us know of your intended participation. All parade participants are asked to have passengers safely secured in any moving vehicle. Businesses are reminded to have their vehicles decorated in either a patriotic or first responder/essential worker theme. For anyone looking for a viewing area, the parade will pass by Lake Rowena twice as it goes out to Cambria Care and circles back up Rowena Drive.
