10th Annual Hillsborough Memorial Day Parade Carnival & Music Festival

This year we celebrate the TENTH ANNUAL HILLSBOROUGH Memorial DAY PARADE, CARNIVAL AND MUSIC FESTIVAL! Join the celebration on Monday, May 27, 2019!  Once again, we will have floats marching and riding through Town in honor of this patriotic holiday, celebrating our community and our country.

The Parade starts at 10:30 a.m. at Town Hall, with line up beginning at 9:30 a.m. The route will go straight up Floribunda, left on Eucalyptus, finishing at North Hillsborough Elementary School. Larry Raffo is returning as our announcer at North, for his 10th year in a row! The Carnival will begin at 10:00 a.m. The Observance Ceremony and Music Festival will begin immediately upon the end of the Parade, at approximately 11:40 a.m.
