Itโ€™s important that we remember why we have a Memorial Day holiday and honor those who fought for our country and have earned our eternal gratitude. As we all enjoy time with family and friends, take a moment to remember the sacrifices that make it possible for us to enjoy our freedoms. There will be speakers, flag raising, singing and more.

MEMORIAL DAY PARADE, 10:30am starts at Old Mill Park

Get ready to catch some candy, wave to familiar faces and make new friends at this years Memorial Day Parade. The parade starts at Old Mill Park at 10:30am and winds its way throughout downtown. Please note, because of the construction on Miller Avenue, the parade route has been changed. See map below for this years parade route.


Beginning Friday, May 26 and running through Monday, May 29, join Kiddo! for a real old-fashioned carnival at the Mill Valley Middle School. There will be rides for all ages, plus food and games. The littlest ones in the family will love the Berry-Go-Round and the Tune Train, while the teenagers will be thrilled with the Sizzler, Zipper, Tilt-A-Whirl and the Texas Tornado, among many more.
