Penn Hills Memorial Day parade marches on, but route may change in 2019
The annual Memorial Day parade in Penn Hills is on.
Parade participants will step off at St. Bartholomew Catholic Parish, 111 Erhardt Drive, at 11:30 a.m. on the holiday and proceed to the parade's traditional destination, the municipal building at 12245 Frankstown Road. A ceremony will be conducted there at noon.
Parks and Recreation Supervisor John Scaglione said the parade route might change next year because the new municipal building, which is expected to open in June, is located on Duff Road.
For this year, though, the route is unchanged, he said.
Scaglione said the municipality is still accepting applications to join the parade through May 25.
“We're looking for groups, businesses, nonprofits, community groups, anyone. We accept classic and antique cars. We're looking for floats, marching bands,” he said.
Those interested in participating are encouraged to contact Scaglione at 412-798-2147 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
