Its mission is to remember and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
EVENT CANCELLED - please see home page for further info.
Please refrain from throwing beads, candy or other items at the parade floats. The City of Bellingham does not want us to throw things off of or onto the parade floats for your safety.
