Oakland Vale is a neighborhood in Saugus, Massachusetts. Oakland Vale hosts several annual events every year that are family friendly and open to the public including:
-The Annual Memorial Day Parade on June 28th of each year. This parade features marching bands from around New England performing as well as many local veterans who served our country proudly! The Memorial Park Cemetery has an honor guard for this event which includes high school students with rifles lined up at attention in front of the Civil War monument. It’s worth noting that it was during World War One when over 500 Oakland Valley residents went off to serve their country abroad!
A highlight of this service is “Taps” played by Charles Wesley Clark Jr., grandson of Mr. Clark Sr. who so famously played it during the unveiling of President Kennedy’s casket in 1963 and for many other notable occasions.
-The Annual Fall Fun Festival on October 28th at Memorial Park where residents can enjoy a variety of fun activities like inflatables, carnival games, food trucks from all around Massachusetts including Taco Truck N’ More!
-Oakland Vale Days – every Father’s Day weekend when there is live music, kids zone with bouncy houses and face painting as well as delicious food vendors such as Papa’s Grill & Deli serving up hot dogs and corn dogs to hungry families looking for something quick but filling!
