Veteran’s Day Parade
The Phoenix VA Health Care System’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade is set for Monday, November 12. Special flyovers are planned to kick off the celebration at 11 a.m.
This year’s theme is “Healing Wounds, Honoring Their Sacrifice,” and features over 100 entries from the community and six giant helium balloons: Uncle Sam, Rosie the Riveter, an American bald eagle, a 40-foot tall doctor, Vannah the nurse and a Purple Heart.
The parade runs north on 7th Street, turns west on Camelback Road, and then turns north on Central Avenue; it ends at Bethany Home Road. Spectators are encouraged to take the Light Rail to the Central and Camelback stop.
