Historic Michigan parade honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice

Inkster is honoring the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for America at one of Michigan's oldest Memorial Day Parade, which started in 1969. The cities of Dearborn and Ferndale, both of which have been held for 95 years, are older than Inkster's parade.

The event will include local businesses, kid-friendly activities, service organizations and churches through their participation and donations.
