The 2013 Memorial Day parade begins at 10 a.m. at the Courthouse on Second and Court Streets, travels down Spring Street and ends at Memorial Park where a ceremony will take place.
Read the May 23, 1913 issue of the San Juan Islander newspaper to find out what was happening in the county a century ago.
This year's photo of the Day series will be a bit different from last year's. The same rules - must be taken this year and in the county - apply with one exception. On the weekend, there will be a historical photo along with a link to a 1913 copy of the San Juan Islander newspaper which was published from 1898 to 1914.
