CHICOPEE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Parades and ceremonies are taking place all across the region today in honor of Memorial Day.

The city of Chicopee is honoring those who died defending our country today with its annual Memorial Day parade.

The Chicopee Veterans' Memorial and Patriotic Committee, along with the Chicopee Department of Veterans' Services invited members of the community to come together and remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom.

"I'm a veteran," Belinda Valentine told us. "And I also wanted to come and pay my respects for the people that served before me and have passed on."

The ceremony began on Exchange Street at ten this morning and concludes at the Veterans Memorial Plaza.
