About the Parade

The Wauconda Memorial Day Parade is a proud tradition of the American Legion Post 911. Celebrating its 68th year in 2019, the American Legion members proudly organize the Memorial Day Parade.  The parade has grown over the years but under the stewardship of Joe Munson it has become the largest Memorial Day parade in Lake County, Illinois. Joe has since retired. We now strive to continue the tradition and devotion Joe left behind. The parade includes military groups, politicians, marching bands, businesses, community and school groups, Boy Scouts, Shriners, and floats.

Most years we arrange an aircraft fly over to start the parade out with some excitement!
