Not sure whey this was buried in the news sent out from the County, but US Marines are scheduled to invade Rye Playland Sunday afternoon at 2pm (see video from 2011). If you have not seen this before, well, it is just plain cool…
This is all part of the Memorial Day celebration that starts at 11:30am with the Westchester Police Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Corps on stage at Playland.
Here is the official news and details:
