THIS YEARS PARADE THEME COMMEMORATES THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY AND THE BATTLE OF NORMANDY
The memory lives on! 6th June 2019 marks the start of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy and with it, a momentous occasion to celebrate peace, liberty and reconciliation.
NORMANDY, LAND OF LIBERTY
On 6 June 1944 and during the long summer that followed, men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and re-establish freedom. Normandy will bear the scars of this moment in history for ever and every year we remember and pay tribute to the veterans from America, Britain, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, Norway, Poland and Australia, along with their brothers in arms, those many heroes who lost their lives here during that summer of 1944. With its many museums, historic sites, cemeteries and cultural and teaching facilities, Normandy is truly an open-air history book. All these places can be discovered by families, who can transmit the exceptionally important lessons of history here to new generations.
No Entry Fee for Veteran Service Organizations, Marching Bands, and Color Guards.
