Quantcast

College Point (Josef Pinlac)

American pride was on full display across Queens this past weekend, as communities commemorated Memorial Day with a number of parades and vigils that brought out big crowds of spectators.

Sunny skies greeted parade-goers on Sunday in College Point, Forest Hills and Maspeth, where residents enjoyed marches featuring bands, service personnel, community groups, elected officials, dancers and youth groups.

Memorial Day Monday brought with it more of the same parades in Howard Beach, Laurelton, Little Neck/Douglaston and Ridgewood/Glendale. The Little Neck/Douglaston march, one of the oldest of its kind in the country, included visits from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, among a bevy of other elected officials.

If you missed any of the festivities, or if you want to look back at some of the highlights, check out the gallery below:
