The village of Conimicut in Warwick, RI plans to celebrate the anniversary of this awesome event with a parade on July 20, 2019.
The mile-long parade route will begin with a staging area at Clegg Field on Winter Avenue south of Conimicut Village and along Ardway Avenue. At 11 a.m. the parade the will head east on Winter Avenue to West Shore Road, turn north to continue on West Shore Road and march a half mile back towards the American Legion hall. Just before reaching the Legion, the route will turn left onto Birchwood Avenue where units will disband along Birchwood and Poplar.
The American Legion will feature a craft fair inside as well as footage of the moon landing, from the launch to the videos of Armstrong and Aldrin on the Lunar Surface, to the splashdown and recovery of the astronauts and the publicity they received afterwards. Barham said the Legion would have room in their parking lot for about 150 tables and chairs for people to sit and enjoy the parade environment.
