mSemorial day parade ummer unofficially begins on Me- morial Day and what better day to
welcome those lazy hazy crazy days than with a parade? Grab a curbside spot along Washington Road early to beat the crowds and see the fire trucks and vintage cars. As in past years, veter- ans, bands, scout groups and other local organizations will march from the can- non at Brookline boulevard to pioneer and then down West Liberty Avenue into Mt. Lebanon. The parade ends at the cemetery. Although the parade starts at 10 a.m., if usually doesn’t hit Mt. Lebanon until at least 10:30. To register to march, call Chris Carr at 412-414-4790.
