Memorial Day Festival & Parade 2015

The 2015 Memorial Day Parade and Festival was a great success! More than 10,000 visitors enjoyed the Don Beyer Fun Run, children's activities, food, civic, and retail vendors, the parade, and more.

The Veterans Ceremony was the centerpiece of the day with Ken Feltman, Chairman of the Falls Church Republican Committee and Co-Founder of the Falls Church City Citizens Forum, stepping in last-minute as keynote speaker.
Thank You
The Recreation and Parks Department hosted the event with the help of numerous City staff and volunteers. "The City sends a special thank you to members of the Falls Church Volunteer Fire Department who were on hand to provide first aid to anyone in need," said Amy Maltese, event manager. "We also could not have had such a memorable event without the ceremony and parade participants, parade judges, vendors, sponsors, and everyone who attended."
