On May 29, 2017 Jenison held their annual Memorial Day Parade. The parade was held on Baldwin street and stretched from 20th to Cottonwood.

The parade started at 9:00p.m. and went on to around 10:30p.m. The majority of the community gathered on the sidewalks with their children who were eager to receive candy from passing floats.

During the parade there were appearances made by different businesses, organizations, sports teams, and of course the Jenison marching band performing Stars and Stripes.

Some of the favorite floats included a swimming float: a float with a blow up swimming pool on it. Another favorite was a float with a jazz band riding on it. One of the favorites among the kids, of course, was the fire trucks with their loud horns and sirens.

Even people who didn’t attend the parade still got to “enjoy it”. The parade was loud enough to be heard from most houses in the Jenison area. “I could hear it from my house,” said Zoya Coty who was woken up  by the sirens.

The parade was an overall success for Jenison this year just as it is every year. Once again it has brought smiles to the residents of the Jenison community.
