Memorial Day Parades


Bellport Memorial Day Parade

Each year, the Village of Bellport and Brookhaven Hamlet have Memorial Day Parades to remember those service members who died while serving in the Armed Forces. The Bellport parade begins near the Village Hall, travels up Bellport Lane to the Four Corners, and finishes at the Cemetery on Station Road.

The Brookhaven parade begins at the Bellport High School, continues east on Beaver Dam Road, then turns east on South Country Road and ends at the Memorial at Fireplace Neck Road. Local veteran groups, local organizations, fire and ambulance companies, and marching bands from various Bellport schools are among those who participate in the parades.

2019 Bellport Memorial Day Parade

Memorial Day in Bellport is always very special. Yes, it’s the unofficial kickoff to summer, but more importantly, it’s a time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives so that we can enjoy days like Memorial Day in Bellport.

This year, the weather was perfect and there was a huge turnout to march in the parade. The parade started at the corner of Bellport Lane and Bell Street near Village Hall and proceeded up Bellport Lane and Station Road to the cemetery at Head of the Neck. We hope you enjoy all of the photos we took for you. Click here for photos taken at the event.

2018 Bellport Memorial Day Parade

The Annual Bellport Village Memorial Day Parade was held on Monday, May 28th. The parade traveled from the Village Green in front of the Community Center and then traveled up Bellport Lane/Station Road to the Village Cemetery.

There were too many groups represented to name them all, but you’ll see them in the photos we took. The Bellport Fire Department, Brookhaven Fire Department, Hagerman Fire Department, South Country Ambulance Company, local baseball and softball teams, and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts were all there including the South Country Peace Group and naturally, Bobby Sterling bringing up the rear. Fred Hall even brought a small Port Jeff Ferry, the PT Barnum, to the parade! VFW Post 8300 should be proud of the job they once again did in organizing the parade.

2013 Bellport Memorial Day Parade

The weather for the days leading up to Memorial Day this year were terrible, rainy, cold, and windy, but for Memorial Day, everything changed and we were treated to a lot of sun, little wind, and temperatures in the '70's. It just doesn't get any better and it was the perfect day for the parade. The parade began near the Village Hall and traveled up Bellport Lane to the Four Corners, and then continued up Station Road to the cemetery. Click here to see more photos from the Parade.

2012 Bellport Memorial Day Parade

As always, this year’s Bellport Memorial Day Parade was great. It seemed like the attendance both in the parade and watching the parade was up from recent years. The perfect weather could have been one factor, but the perfect choreography of the parade and its participants certainly was a factor too. In addition to being a day to honor our past and present military members, it’s also turned into a family oriented day of remembrance and reflection. All of those involved should feel good about what they accomplished. Click here to see more photos from the Parade.

 


Brookhaven Memorial Day Parade

2012 Brookhaven Memorial Day Parade

The 2012 Brookhaven Hamlet Memorial Day Parade was a huge success. The day started off a little cloudy, but turned into a beautiful day. There was some confusion due to the parade starting at 9:00am instead of the more traditional 9:30am, but it all worked out just fine. The later starting time was due to a special ceremony honoring Brookhaven Hamlet residents who have either served in the military in the past or who are currently serving. All in all, it was a very special day and parade. Click here to see more photos from the Parade.

 


 

2011 Brookhaven Memorial Day Parade

For the first time in seven years we weren’t able to make it to the Memorial Day Parades that were held in Brookhaven Hamlet and Bellport Village. We were visiting with our grandchildren in California so we’re sure you’ll forgive us.

Linda Majowka was nice enough to share the photos she took at both parades so if you couldn’t make it to the parades this year, you have Linda to thank for her great photos.
