It is the centerpiece of an annual citywide effort to honor our veterans community.
The Parade features veterans groups and service providers, military units, youth and civic groups, top high school bands from across America, vintage vehicles, floats and more. It is supported by numerous sponsoring partners, including UWVC Recycling, First Data, Cushman & Wakefield and Wounded Warrior Project.
