The Lexington Park Business and Community Association will host a parade on Saturday, May 4 to celebrate the community’s historic partnership with the Naval Air Station Patuxent River.
Pax River was commissioned in 1943. April 1 marks the 70th year since the opening of the installation. During the past seven decades, St. Mary’s County and Pax River have moved in lockstep toward an ever brightening future for our community. This year, we take a moment to recognize the significance of this relationship.
We hope that you will join us in celebrating the 70-year partnership between the U. S. Navy and the Lexington Park community by entering a group to participate in the second annual Pride in the Park Parade.
The parade will start promptly at 10 a.m., leaving from the parking lot of the Bay District Volunteer Fire Department, located on South Shangri-La Drive in Lexington Park. The route will follow Shangri-La to South Essex to Great Mills Road and then back to the Fire Department via the alley near Raley’s Home Furnishings.
The Navy’s partnership with Lexington Park is the envy of the armed services. We now strive to ensure that the annual parade is equally successful. We hope that you will join us to make this event the pinnacle of Pax River’s 70th year celebration. Click here for an entry form.
