[slideshow id=3]KENNETT SQUARE — Thousands of local residents gathered to watch one of the largest Memorial Day Parades in recent history, as it made its way from the downtown area of the Borough to the Union Hill Cemetery in Kennett Township, Monday, where a moving ceremony honored the nation’s war dead.

Although the closing ceremonies were somber (see video below), the parade itself was a celebration of the United States and its fighting men and women, with military vehicles of all sorts, veterans, military reenactors and dozens of community groups and organizations, including marching bands from Kennett High School and Unionville High School.

Monday’s event appeared to be one of the best-attended in recent years, as local residents lined streets in the borough, up Route 82 to the cusp of Unionville.
