Memorial Day Parade

If you were disappointed that the Memorial Day parade was canceled today, you can satisfy your need for a good, old-fashioned Memorial Day parade by watching some Memorial Day parades of yesteryear in Hudson, preserved in Jozef Cipkowski's home movies. 

Scenes from Hudson, Part 2 has parade footage at 4:20 to 8:00 and again at 9:11 to 12:12. This was back in the day when the Memorial Day parade started at Front Street and marched all the way to the cemetery, where the ceremony took place--and, as someone who has lived in Hudson all his life told Gossips, it happened "in all kinds of weather."
