Ridgefield will have its Memorial Day parade.

That’s the news Denis Loncto, the American Legion’s parade coordinator, announced Monday around 7:30 a.m.

"We're going to have a Memorial Day parade for a change," he told The Press.

"The parade will launch off from Jesse Lee at 11:30 this morning," he said.

The parade was cancelled in town in 2016 when the weather broke favorably after a forecast of thunderstorms and heavy winds. In 2017, the parade was washed out — leaving Ridgefielders without a parade for two consecutive years.

The wait is officially over, and didn't take long for some residents to react — and celebrate. Chairs were being set up down Main Street as of 8 a.m. for this year's parade, which is set to start at 11:30 a.m.

The grand marshal will be Dave Campbell, a Navy vet who served in Vietnam.
