Bay Ridge veteran is grand marshal of Memorial Day Parade
A Bay Ridge World War II veteran who spearheaded a project to plant American flags on sidewalks in the community’s shopping strips will serve as the grand marshal of 148th Annual Kings County Memorial day Parade.
Howard Dunn, who served in the U.S Navy, will ride the parade route in an open air convertible.
The parade will take place on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, in Bay Ridge, starting at 11 a.m.
“There are a lot of other people who deserve it,” Dunn said, referring to his selection as the grand marshal. “But I’m very excited they chose me.”
