From Wicked Good Maine:

Every year in Topsham and Brunswick, Maine, a celebratory parade and heartfelt ceremonies mark the observance of Memorial Day. Mainers and visitors from all over the midcoast region flock to Topsham, the town just across the Androscoggin River from Brunswick.

The Brunswick-Topsham Memorial Day Parade honors Vietnam War veterans. The parade begins at Monument Place in Topsham after a 9 a.m. ceremony, said parade chairwoman Mary Jewell.

Marchers head down Main Street, stop at the Frank J. Wood Bridge for a short ceremony and continue onto Maine Street in Brunswick to the gazebo on the Mall. The gazebo is the site of a number of speeches and musical performances.
