Beaufort celebrates Memorial Day with parade & ceremony
Beaufort celebrated Memorial Day with a well-attended annual parade and a ceremony at Beaufort’s beloved National Cemetery that immediately followed. Beaufortonians of all ages turned out for the parade to remember our heroes, to say thanks and to show their appreciation to the many local combat veterans who joined in this year’s march.
Also on hand were members of several branches of the Armed Forces, two of our local high school bands, JROTC units, local civic leaders, floats, classic cars, local emergency personnel, and many other entries.
After the parade, hundreds gathered on a beautiful day to remember our fallen heroes at Beaufort National Cemetery’s Memorial Day Ceremony. One of the most sacred spots in the Lowcountry.
