Veterans Day is November 11th one week from today!
The Phoenix VA Veterans Day Parade takes place on Nov. 11, beginning at 11 a.m. The parade runs northbound from the Phoenix VA Health Care System beginning at Seventh Street and Montecito, turning westbound on Camelback Road, then northbound on Central Avenue to Bethany Home Road, where it will destage at North Phoenix Baptist Church.
The Phoenix VA Health Care System’s Veterans Day Parade began in 1997 and since that time has grown from 50 entries and 10,000 spectators to approximately 100 entries and hundreds of thousands of spectators. The parade is designed to help commemorate and honor our
Veterans and to educate Americans about the service and sacrifices our Veterans have made to protect our freedoms. Here is a link that will take you to the main web page for the parade with a whole bunch of links. Click Here.
