PRINCETON: Veterans, bands and community groups put the spirit into Memorial Day parade (with multiple photos)
Princeton’s Memorial Day parade stepped off in brilliant sunshine Saturday, making its way down Nassau Street to Monument Plaza and a dedication ceremony at the Washington battle monument.
The parade featured nearly three dozen groups, from veterans to members of local Scout troops, with marching bands included.
The parade was presented by the Spirit of Princeton, the local non-profit group that organizes not only the parade but a Flag Day ceremony, an Independence Day celebration and a Veterans Day ceremony. The organization also provided free American flags for spectators to wave as the parade passed by.

Justin Guarini is starring in a Sondheim classic at Bucks County Playhouse
IT’S hard to believe it’s been 13 years since a fresh- faced Justin Guarini was battling it out with Kelly Clarkson in the finals of American Idol in the show’s debut season, but it was all the way back in 2002 when the singer first caught the attention of America.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Mr. Guarini almost didn’t appear on the show, having been offered a role on Broadway in The Lion King.
”I was at a real crossroads back then. I could do my first Broadway show or do this TV show that no one ever heard of and go out to Hollywood and sing,” he says. “I had a week to decide and so I went out to California and kept advancing so I had to thank them for the opportunity and I stuck with the show.”
