The 24th annual Greater Gouverneur Area Chamber of Commerce Flag Day Event and Parade will be held Saturday, June 10 starting at 10 a.m. in the village park.
There will be an opening ceremony at 10 a.m. with Gouverneur High School senior Bailey Soper performing the national anthem. The Matune Creek Band will then play from 10 a.m. to noon.
There will be vendors, music, children’s games (by Gouverneur Recreation Dept.), bouncy house (sponsored by Aubuchon Hardware), and Farmer’s Market in the park starting at 10 a.m. as well.
The Gouverneur Elks Lodge No. 2035 will hold its flag ceremony from noon to 1 p.m.
The annual Flag Day parade kicks off at 2 p.m.
The lineup will start at 1 p.m. Clubs, individuals, businesses and organizations are all welcome in the parade. Enter through Wilson Street to line up on Johnstown Street. The parade will come across Main Street and end on Trinity Ave., behind Northern Federal Credit Union.
Organizer Connie Stowell said all are invited to participate, and that “no one will be turned away!”
The Gouverneur High School Wildcat Marching Band will be in attendance along with the Indian River Marching Band, the Alexandria Bay Mardi Gras Band, and the 10th Mountain Division Band.
Mrs. Stowell said the Alexandria Bay Mardi Gras band usually puts on a performance in the park following the parade, and all are inviting to “stick around” to witness their skilled musicianship.
Come out and celebrate the Red, White and Blue!
