Slide Show: Riverhead celebrates Memorial Day

Riverhead residents showed their patriotism Monday as the annual Memorial Day Parade marched along the streets of downtown.

The parade is an annual tradition that saw area residents lining local the roads from Pulaski Street to  the St. John’s Cemetery with red, white and blue. Even a little rain didn’t keep local community groups from marching.

U.S. Army Specialist Emily Connors led the way after her recent tour of Afghanistan.
