Guam - According to Liberation Parade chairperson Mayor Melissa Savares this year's parade festivities will be heading in a different direction starting at the Chief Kapuha Loop and Paseo and heading south towards Adelup. Celebrating the 70th anniversary of liberation Savares says the grand stand will be filled with liberators and war survivors who are a lot older.

She told KUAM News, "We want them to be the first ones to see the parade, and that's the reason, its not because we just want to change it, we want them to be the first, to see the display of all the marching units, be the first to be saluted, be the first to see everything that comes through."

Savares reminds the public that the last day to turn in any registration to enter into the parade is June 30th and encourages government agencies, businesses, organizations and residents to enter. Registration can be turned into the Dededo Mayor's Office. This year's theme is "Generations of Service and Sacrifice."
