Wichita’s annual Veteran’s Day parade will be held downtown Saturday morning, November 7, 2015 at 11 a.m. The parade this year will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The parade is held by JROTC and sponsored by local businesses. You can also sponsor, donate, or volunteer to help – just visit the website at http://www.dwss.us/WichitaVeteransDayParade and click the relevant link.
After the parade, head to the Waterwalk fountain area (just west of the Waterwalk building on Main Street) for the Celebration of Heroes, a get-together with parade participants. Celebration activities will include a military display from Fort Riley (with a Bradley tank!), a car show, face-painting, lots of food trucks, and many other activities.
On Monday, November 9 at 10 a.m., a celebration with patriotic music from the South High band and Madrigal singers and over 2000 Wichita JROTC cadets in formation will be held in the Expo Hall of Century II. Try to make it if you can – it’s sure to be impressive and a wonderful celebration of our nation’s veterans.
