Southampton Village Parade

Threatening skies and light drizzle didn’t sway a crowd of parade goers that turned out to honor Southampton Village’s service men and women on Monday, May 28.

They wore poppies and waved American flags while they watched local veterans, school groups, the Civil Air Patrol, and Boy and Cub Scouts march along Main Street. The day’s festivities were capped off with a memorial service at Agawam Park, where Mike Smith, pastor of the Shinnecock Presbyterian Church, led the service in prayer, and veterans laid wreaths in remembrance of those who lost their lives.
