Dacula Memorial Day
parade has been a proud tradition in Dacula since 1994. The
parade has grown over the
years and remains the only Memorial Day parade in Metro Atlanta,
largest in the the state of
Georgia and one of the largest in our nation with more than 150 units
participating in the parade each year!
begin to line the street hours before
parade begins. Averaging 150 units in the parade each year,
there are 10,000+ spectators lining
parade route when the parade steps off at 10:00 a.m.
The Dacula Memorial Day parade is one of the most high profile events in the metro Atlanta area on Memorial Day. It is important that we take this opportunity to honor the sacrifice made by thousands of Americans who died guarding our precious liberties and way of life. As founder of the Dacula Memorial Day parade, it is my goal to see that today's youth understand the significance of Memorial Day. For this reason, every parade unit is to focus on honoring our Veterans and display patriotism.
The parade features Veterans, Veterans organizations, active and reserve service men and women, active and restored military vehicles, marching bands, Scouts, churches, community groups, custom designed floats, local businesses, horses, antique cars, trucks and tractors and much more!We hope you will plan to join us while we honor those who gave their lives for our freedom!
