“Bedford Memorial Day Hometown Parade” will be held on  Sunday, May 27, 2018 @ 1 PM

Come honor the service and sacrifices of our veterans and those who serve today by marching in the parade, sponsoring a specialty unit, volunteering, or join us to just watch the parade. This is Bedford’s only Hometown Parade and it is a highly attended annual event.

The 2018 theme "Keeping the Dream Alive"

Various community organizations are invited to create floats around the theme.

This years’ parade will tribute Bedford WW II Veteran: 

The Parade will step off at 1 PM at Bedford High School driveway and we march down to County Road and up to Liberty Hill Road and end at McKelvie Intermediate School where visitors may take in the sights and sounds of the afternoon with various vendors set-up on the school grounds ready to serve refreshments including the Bedford Men’s Club and more.

Each year, the residents of Bedford are joined by visitors who line up to catch a glimpse of the parade and the various groups and organizations to show their community spirit.

Although we have many parade favorites participating over the years, the parade committee is always looking for new entries and community groups interested in becoming part of this neighborhood tradition.

If you have a group or organization that would like to appear in the Parade - Contact the Recreation Department at 472-5242 or e-mail
