The Memorial Day parade looped around downtown Concord on Monday, starting on Main Street and looping back down South State Street to the State House. After the parade, a service in honor of those who sacrificed their lives in the defense of our country was held, with the laying of wreaths at the memorial on the State House Plaza.

What a great bunch of photos. And what a great picture on the front page of the little boy leading the parade and capturing the look on his face. So glad Geoff is back and to think some papers are laying off photo journalists.
