Why The Memorial Day Parade In Blasdell Is Canceled This Weekend
If your Memorial Day plans involve the parade in Blasdell you will need to make other plans this year. The Villiage has decided to cancel the parade this year because of the conditions on Lake Ave. The road conditions are so poor that they feel they will risk injury of those marching in the parade.
According to WGRZ,
"Erie County Highway Commissioner Bill Geary says there is a major reconstruction project planned for Lake Avenue in 2019, with concurrent utility line and pipe work done by Erie County Water Authority and the sewer department."
Hopefully, this will help the parade return next Memorial Day! The Villiage of Blasdell will still hold a ceremony on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the former Blasdell Library.
