Freeport, Illinois — Yesterday was the annual Memorial Day parade and Courthouse Ceremony in Freeport. Thousands of people packed the downtown streets to enjoy this annual tradition, and to remember our military who gave their lives for our Freedoms.
Thanks to social media, those present at the morning’s festivities were able to share photos and videos of the fun they had at the parade. Probably one of our favorite comments as we looked through the sea of pictures, was a comment from Michael Gorsline that read;
“You can take the girl out of the pretzel but you can never take the pretzel out of the girl.”
He adds, “I have no idea what that means but it sounded brilliant a minute ago. Anyway, this is what happens when you take your cute wife to the Memorial day parade”. You can view his video below, along with some of the other wonderful scenes from this years 2018 Memorial Day parade.
We hope everyone had fun this year, as in years past, and we hope the true meaning of the day is never forgotten.
