Richmond Remembrance Day Ceremony
Join Richmond in remembering the soldiers who fell in battle this Sunday, November 11 at Richmond City Hall.
The parade starts at 10:20 AM and official ceremonies at the City Hall cenotaph will begin at 10:40 AM. Two minutes of silence will take place at 11 AM followed by wreath-laying.
When the service ends, the public is invited to a Remembrance Day reception in the City Hall Galleria.
This is a free event where people can warm up with a hot drink and something sweet, talk about the ceremony and connect with other community members, and view a number of interesting Remembrance Day displays put together by the City of Richmond Archives and the Friends of the Richmond Archives.
Receptions guests will also be treated to music by Richmond Peace Children’s Choir.
