2024 Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend

AT 9 A.M. WE DECIDED THAT THE PARADE IS A GO. We are going to hold the 56th Annual Wellesley Veterans Parade. See you soon!


Veterans Parade – Sunday, May 19, 2024

Donate Today To Honor Our Wellesley Veterans Who Served Our Country And Recognize Those Organizations and People Who Serve Our Community

Town Picnic, Concert and Fireworks — Sunday, May 19, 2024

Thousands march or watch. If you live in Wellesley, you are either in the parade or watching — or like these boy scouts both! Traditionally, our scouting programs carry (with the help of their parents) the large American Flag near the front of the parade. Then, they scatter back to line the streets to watch the remaining marchers.
