Pictures from Sanford Memorial Day parade and ceremony

The city of Sanford continued its tradition of hosting the largest Memorial Day event in Central Florida, with its annual parade and Remembrance Ceremony.

Some 7,500 spectators watched the hour-long parade make its way down 1st Street and Park Avenue. The parade ended at Veterans Memorial Park, where dignataries and veterans groups honored Seminole County’s fallen servicemen and women.

The ceremony concluded with a 3-volley salute (often incorrectly referred to as a 21-gun salute) by Sanford Police Department and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and a helicopter fly-over  by the sheriff’s office.
