Hundreds line streets of West Duluth for Memorial Day parade

DULUTH, MN — Hundreds of people lined the streets of West Duluth Monday, paying tribute to the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.

The annual memorial day parade is nearly 100 units strong with all branches of the Armed Services represented.

On Monday, there were several marching bands, vehicles and floats tossing candy to kids as they made their way down Grand Avenue.

Veterans attending say the day is important to them because it gives them a chance to honor those who lost their lives in service.

“It means showing respect for the people that have lost their lives,” Vietnam War Veteran Bob Gaskill said. “It has really nothing to do with the living … it’s really for the people that didn’t make it.”

The Duluth Women of Today were responsible for organizing this year’s parade.
