Morris Plains will host its 28th Annual Memorial Day Parade next Saturday starting at 9:30 a.m. following a service at 9 a.m. at Robert’s Garden at the corner of Glenbrook Road and Mountain Way.

The parade will travel along Mountain Way, east on Rosedale Ave, then north along Speedwell Avenue, past the reviewing stand at the corner of Franklin Place, opposite the railroad station, and continue north up Littleton Road to Route 53 north where it will end at the VFW Watnong Post 3401.
