FILE VIDEO 4/17/16 SUGAR GROVE, IL: Illinois Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopter Training at Aurora Municipal Airport – Video by Dave Weaver/Radioman911.

The Memorial Day Parade will step off from Village Hall at 9:30 am. as usual on Memorial Day morning, but this year there is an extra event planned after the parade through downtown, and the Memorial Day Ceremony after the parade on Monday May 27, 2019. This year, 2019, is a Centennial celebration for Memorial Day in Arlington Heights, and organizers have something special at the soccer field just East of Recreation Park and just south of the American Legion Hall (Merle Guild Post 208).

Weather permitting, an Illinois Army National Guard Sikorsky Black Hawk helicopter will land at the soccer field just east of Recreation Park at 10:30 am. The helicopter air crew will offer public tours until about 2:30 p.m.

BLACK HAWK SAFETY
To ensure safety at this event, the soccer field will be fenced off the day before, and there will be one entry and one exit point for visitors. Arlington Heights Police and volunteers will be on site the entire time to manage traffic and crowds.

For this day, Douglas Ave will be changed to ONE WAY going SOUTH and Hickory Avenue will be changed to ONE WAY going NORTH. Visitors will use street parking.

STRONG RECOMMENDATION FROM ORGANIZERS: If possible, park away from the event and walk in. Consider parking 1 to 2 blocks away from Recreation Park. You will avoid the congestion.

The Memorial Day Parade steps off every year on Memorial Day, Monday, and is dedicated to thanking all veterans for their service.

The Memorial Day Ceremony is held at Memorial Park at Chestnut and Fremont just one block west of the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. The Memorial Day Ceremony will begin at 11:00 am. This honors our Fallen Heroes … especially Arlington’s Fallen Heroes – the 58 young men from Arlington Heights, who died in the service of our Nation – from the Civil War to Afghanistan.
