A ceremony was held on Monday, May 29, 2017 to honor fallen military members. Families and friends gathered to support the event filled with festivities for the whole community, including a Memorial Day parade. The Los Angeles County Fire Department showed its support of the event with Fire Chief Daryl Osby in attendance, Fire Station 82 engines driving the parade route and a Department helicopter completing a flyover.
The parade also featured drill teams, marching bands, dignitaries and other entries that marched along Foothill Boulevard. At the end of the route, parade-goers enjoyed the rest of the day with bounce houses, a children’s petting zoo, face painting and entertainment.
