Come join us here at the Admiral’s Inn in beautiful Ogunquit, Maine for Memorial Day in 2018—you’ll have fantastic accommodations for the annual holiday parade!
The Memorial Day Parade in Ogunquit & Wells
Ogunquit and the nearby hamlet of Wells just north share a Memorial Day parade each year. The procession commences at 9 AM at Wells High School on Sanford Road and heads for Ocean View Cemetery on Route 1, where a Memorial Day ceremony takes place. Then the parade takes a brief hiatus to rematerialize on Bourne Lane in Ogunquit for a second leg starting at 11 AM. An Ogunquit ceremony will follow as well.
Admiral’s Inn Lodgings for Memorial Day
With Main Street accommodations at the Admiral’s Inn, you’re just a short stroll from the Bourne Lane stepping-off point for the Ogunquit Memorial Day Parade. And if you feel like a full morning’s worth of parade-going, you’re but a hop, skip, and a jump from Wells, too: Our northern neighbor’s only about a 15-minute drive from our hotel doorstep.
Taking in one of the best-known Memorial Day celebrations on the Southern Maine coast is a fine way to mark this holiday of remembrance, where we honor those servicemen and women who’ve given their lives for their country.
This is a beautiful time of year to visit Ogunquit, and besides the parade and Memorial Day ceremony your Admiral’s Inn springtime getaway could include visits to Ogunquit Beach, flowery strolls on the Marginal Way coastal path, catching Smokey Joe’s Café at the Ogunquit Playhouse, appreciating one of the 2018 exhibitions at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art (from The View From Narrow Coveto This Side of Paradise: American Artists of the Paris Salon), and much more.
And don’t forget you’ll have a brand-new—or rather a new/old—option for a topnotch morning meal right here at the Admiral’s Inn: Amore Breakfast! This much-loved Ogunquit eatery, a fixture in town since the mid-1990s, closed in 2016, but we managed to convince the Amore team to reopen at our hotel—to the delight of Ogunquit locals and regular visitors alike, as there was a great deal of mourning when the café shut its doors. Breakfast at Amore will start off your Memorial Day celebrations in style, and you’ll be wonderfully fueled up for the parade that morning!
