Memorial Day PArade

Memorial Day Parade and Service

The Royal Oak Memorial Day Parade starts at 9 a.m. on Main Street at Lincoln and proceeds north through downtown Royal Oak.  A Memorial Day ceremony immediately follows the parade at the Royal Oak War Memorial located on the lawn adjacent to the Royal Oak Public Library.

The parade has been held on Memorial Day for several decades as a respectful tribute to our veterans - past and present. For more information, including parade route, lineup and more, visit www.romi.gov/parade.

Parking Lot to Close June 5

On Tuesday, June 5 the north side of the Williams Street parking lot (adjacent to the east side of the library) will close to make way for a 581-space parking garage. Once built, the new garage will be patrolled by Royal Oak Police, and will include two-hours of free parking before 5 p.m. similar to the city-owned Center Street, Lafayette North and South garages.

To accommodate residents, visitors and disabled individuals, a new public, three-hour metered parking lot, with handicap parking, is now available between City Hall and the Royal Oak Library. During farmers market events the parking is free of charge.
