The American Legion – Post 282 of Ypsilanti in partnership with Ypsi Parade 91st Independence Day Parade “Unparade”
The American Legion – Post 282 of Ypsilanti in partnership with Ypsi Parade would like to announce due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the City of Ypsilanti’s announcement to cancel all summer events in Ypsilanti that the 91st Independence Day Parade will not carry on in its traditional fashion.
To keep in the spirit of the of our annual celebration The American Legion will partner with Ypsi Parade to host an “Unparade” celebration. We will work with the communities of Ypsilanti to host their own mini parade within their neighborhoods. This way normal parade attendees can watch from the comforts of their own front lawn and stay safe. We are looking for representatives to be team leaders for each neighborhood. If interested in being an organizer or participant, please fill out the registration form located at this link: https://form.jotform.com/201064375732148
The American Legion- Post 282 will conduct a flag ceremony live from the Post at 11:00 am on July 4th that can be viewed via the parades Facebook Page.
They will also hand out free hot dogs and hamburgers with chips and a beverage from 12pm-3 PM at the post.
