The City of Orlando celebrates the contribution of Veterans with its annual Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, November 14.
This signature Orlando event features more than 50 Central Florida veterans groups, the UCF Marching Knights and other marching bands, 13 ROTC and JROTC units, first responders, community groups and military vehicles.
Hosted by Mayor Buddy Dyer and his Veterans Advisory Council, this year’s parade is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
The parade’s five grand marshals all served honorably during the conflict in Vietnam: Sgt. Peter Tattersall (U.S. Army), Col. Bob Springer (U.S. Marine Corps), Corpsman Jon Yeitrakis (U.S. Navy), Capt. William Thomas (U.S. Coast Guard) and Col. Joe Kittinger (U.S. Air Force).
There will be an opening ceremony at 10:30am, then the parade starts around 11am at the corner of Orange Ave and Robinson Street, and heads south to Central Ave. From there, it heads east on Central to Rosalind Ave. The final stretch sees the parade head north on Rosalind to Robinson.
It’s free to watch the parade, but spaces along the route tend to fill up fast, so I would recommend getting down there early. If you can’t be there to see it in person, News 13 will televise it live, beginning at 10:30am.
