2021 Veterans Day Parade

There may have been a slight nip in the air, but the sun shone brightly as the marching bands roused the crowd and parade-goers cheered on participants in the 2021 Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11.

Opening ceremonies took place at 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Cortez and Union streets before the parade got started. This year’s theme was: Honoring World War II Veterans — a Grateful Nation Salutes the Greatest Generation.

The City invited participants to enter in these categories: Fraternal or military organizations, music; motorized groups; marching units; hospital entries by veterans; nonprofit organizations and commercial/business enterprises.
