The City of Riverbank’s 2020 Memorial Day Remembrance Event at the Veteran’s Memorial Wall has been converted from its traditional open-to-the-public event to a “Live Stream Event” due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The health and safety of veterans, residents, and the community is a priority for city officials, who have opted for the virtual observance.

They will remember and honor those who died in active military service, those who have served and those that are serving in the various branches of the United States Armed Forces.

Residents, family, and friends are encouraged to watch the Memorial Day: Remember and Honor Virtual Event through Facebook Live, Instagram, and YouTube under the city name, Riverbank. The video will also be posted shortly after on the City’s website at
