Even without the parade, Commerce City recognizes Memorial Day
Although this year's Commerce City Memorial Day Parade is canceled due to COVID-19 public health concerns and guidance against large gatherings, the city is finding ways to bring the spirit of the parade to residents this Memorial Day weekend.
Video footage from parades in years past will be broadcast throughout Monday on CCTV Channel 8 (HD 881). The video is also available to watch anytime on the city's YouTube channel.
Members of the public are also welcome to pay their respects at the city’s Veterans Memorial on Monday. The city will also lay a wreath at the memorial, which is located at the corner of Parkway Drive and Forest Drive, to honor the sacrifice of our military heroes. If you visit, please observe social distancing guidelines and be aware that Veterans Memorial Park (behind the memorial at 6015 Forest Dr.) is currently under construction.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend, Commerce City!
