Wauconda Memorial Day Parade
The Wauconda Memorial Day Parade is a proud tradition of the American Legion Post 911. Celebrating its 72th year in 2023, the American Legion members proudly organize the Memorial Day Parade and Memorial Day Ceremony. The parade has grown over the years but under the stewardship of Joe Munson it has become the largest Memorial Day parade in Lake County, Illinois. Joe has since retired. We now strive to continue the tradition and devotion Joe left behind.
The parade is free to participate or march in. If you would like to participate or march please click the Register button below.
