Every Memorial Day, this parade begins at 9am from the Waynedale United Methodist Church parking lot and leads South following Old Trail Road to Prairie Grove Cemetery. The public is invited to join the parade or watch from the sidewalks. The Waynedale parade brings over 3,000 residents and visitors together to see this historic yearly event.
In Waynedale we most importantly remember those who have given their lives for our freedom. Supporting our troops and families, hundreds of people proudly wave flags up and down Old Trail Road for the Memorial Day parade.
After, the parade crowd walks to Prairie Grove Cemetery to observe the 21-gun salute, playing of the National Anthem by Wayne High School, and a presentation honoring those who have fallen with the traditional laying of the wreath.
