2015 Memorial Day Parade

Monday, May 25th 2015 is Memorial Day. It is a time to honor those we have lost, and those who devoted their lives to the betterment of our lives and our country.  The parade procession will be in full force Monday morning, and various groups will hold ceremonies throughout the weekend.  Bring your whole family downtown and help us show the world how patriotic the City of Elyria can be! 
Also, we're very close to bringing fireworks back for 2015!  We're making the final push through the end of this month!  You can still make donations online here, or you can fill out this form and mail it with a check made out to City of Elyria - Fireworks Fund, Attention Mayor Holly Brinda - Elyria City Hall, Suite 301, Elyria, Ohio 44035.  ANY HELP IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!  We're very close and with your help we can make it happen again!
