Held rain or shine, the parade will step off at 1 p.m., travel along the historic Tolland Green, turn right at town hall onto Old Post Road and end at the Tolland Intermediate School. The route is 7/10s of a mile.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Honoring Their Sacrifice” as residents and veterans together reflect on the sacrifice that veterans when they have given their lives while serving their country.

Elected officials, local sports teams, local civic groups, Girl and Boy Scout troops, veterans groups, school groups and Tolland businesses are invited to march or have a float in the parade. There will be a float contest as well as an essay contest held in May. Antique cars can also take part in the parade.
