Let's celebrate Veterans' Day by attending the City Hall Parade! Tammie will send us more information so we can watch the parade together.
VETERANS DAY CELEBRATION
Texas has the 2nd largest veteran population in the nation with over 250,000 veterans in residence. The City is proud to pay tribute to our men and women in the military by providing an annual “Houston Salutes American Heroes Veterans Day Celebration”. This civic celebration honors and celebrates the brave men, women, and families who have fought and sacrificed for our liberty and freedom.
The traditional Veterans Day Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 11 at 10 a.m. with acknowledgments and a distinguished keynote speaker recognizing our local heroes. At the 11th hour on the 11th day, there will be a Moment of Silence in memory of the 102nd anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, which ended WWI.
Following the Veterans Day Ceremony, the American Heroes Parade will begin at 11:30 A.M. at Dallas and Bagby, and proceeds east on Dallas, north on Louisiana, west on Walker, south on Smith, west on Lamar, ending on Lamar at Bagby.
