Remembrance Day

Each year on November 11th, the community of Sidney honours and pays tribute to our Veterans and Military personnel.

Live Stream of Sidney Remembrance Day Ceremony

The Remembrance Parade is returning to Sidney this November 11th with a new approach to ensure safety during COVID-19. Instead of a march through town, the parade will be static with a reduced number of Veterans, Military personnel, and individuals from additional Units standing in front of the Cenotaph at Sidney Town Hall in an “extended formation” (6-feet apart).

Sidney Avenue, between Third St. and Fourth St. will be closed from 10am to 12pm to facilitate Remembrance Day proceedings.

The Service of Remembrance for the Fallen will follow the static parade at 10:45am. This will include laying of wreaths to honour the ultimate sacrifice of service personnel who did not return from war.

 

Please Note: Members of the public are invited to watch the event livestreamed from home instead of attending in person to support public health during the pandemic. Community members may wish to observe the Two Minutes of Silence outdoors as the traditional Fly Past is scheduled to take place at approximately 11:00 am. Live stream information will be shared soon.
