East Orange Celebrates Memorial Day 2018
Photographer and Videographer: Samuel Myrtil

The Memorial Day Ceremony began in the street this year, instead of in front of the Stone War Memorial. Veterans sat in special chairs set up right beneath the podium.

You can hear Taps played and a rendition of the National Anthem on the video that follows:

On the other side of the city, on Central Avenue, the three invited bands began the march towards City Hall.


East Orange Campus High School Marching Jaguars were in the lead.

The next band was from Newark's Central High School.

Finally came what appears to be an ROTC drum squad. When we learn the name, it will be included here.

You can see and hear the three bands on the video that follows.
