VFW Post 475 held a brief Memorial Day parade down Main Street on Saturday, culminating in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Academy Lawn war memorial. Participants included the VFW honor guard, Ladies Auxiliary, Young Marines of New Castle County, Korean War Veterans Association and Mayor Jerry Clifton. A handful of spectators waved flags, but the parade was not widely publicized in advance. Newark's larger, city-sponsored Memorial Day parade was canceled for the second year due to the pandemic.
