MTM On The Road: Memorial Day Events in Cadillac

Memorial Day is the ‘unofficial’ kickoff to summer in Northern Michigan but it’s important to remember the reason for the extra day off work.

The Cadillac community comes together each year for a variety of events to honor and remember the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

The events begin at 9:30 a.m. on Monday at City Dock with a small service. The parade begins at 10:00 a.m. and all veterans are invited to walk and family members of veterans who have passed or are unable to make it are invited to walk with the group and carry a photo.

After the parade a ceremony is held at Vikings Memorial Stadium next to the high school with a guest speaker and salute to those who serve.

Kalin and Stephanie spent the morning previewing what’s ahead this weekend.
