Armed Forces Day Parade

Saturday, May 19  I  Noon

If you love a parade, South Charleston is where you  need to be this Saturday, May 19 as Thomas Memorial Hospital and the city of South Charleston present the 59th annual Armed Forces Day Parade. Celebrating the service of all branches of the Armed Forces, the parade kicks off at noon along South Charleston’s picturesque D Street.

While the parade is always lovely, be forewarned that D Street will be closed for parking Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. and until after the parade route is cleared. If you plan on visiting Capitol Clay Arts Company Saturday, park on side streets or in the municipal parking lots and, to be honest, getting here before 11 a.m. is a good idea–crowds start to form then.
