City of South Bend temporarily renames street to celebrate Memorial Day
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The City of South Bend temporarily renamed the intersection of Ford and Lombardy Streets to celebrate Memorial Day.
The intersection was renamed “Memorial Day Drive” to kick off the holiday weekend’s Westside Memorial Day Parade.
Students from Navarre Middle School came out to help unveil the new sign and road crews helped place it.
“Parade is about tradition, carrying on tradition, carrying it on into our younger generation, having them remember those who have sacrificed their lives for us, for our freedom,” Parade Marshal Publicity, Jan Kowalski said.
The ninety-sixth Westside Memorial Day Parade will take place on Monday, May 27 starting at 8:15 a.m.
The route will begin at Lombardy Street and end on Olive Street.
