Thousands line Main Street to celebrate and honor those who sacrificed everything.
Thousands came out to watch the 2019 Memorial Day parade that began at 10:00 AM at the corner of Spring and Main in Downtown Klamath Falls. Spectators lined parade route from the Klamath County Museum all the way to Veteran’s Memorial Park.
Current Vice-Commander and the soon to be Commander of the 173rd Fighter Wing at Kingsley Field, Colonel Jeff Edwards was the Grand Marshal for the parade.
24 Entries decorated floats, drove vehicles, or walked in this year’s parade that was organized by the Klamath Freedom Celebration (https://www.klamathfc.org/).
“We can, and always will put on the parade,” says Doug Brown, founder of the Klamath Freedom Celebration. “[We are] glad to do it BUT I WANT IT BIGGER more entries and more people.”
“Many just think its opening weekend of summer and not about those who have sacrificed all for use to enjoy this sacred weekend,” continues Brown.
Klamath Falls News live streamed the parade in its entirety from outside our downtown studio & office. The video can be watched below or on the KFN Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/KlamathFallsNews/
