We also have Purple Heart Lapels pins for the first 100 veterans that identify themselves as Purple Heart recipients. In addition those with ” Purple Hearts” can ride in special vehicles that we have set aside for them, in the parade. Hope to see you there

We have participated in this parade, hail, rain or shine, for 9 years. It is so good to feel the appreciation of the community for our active military and our veterans of all ages, all wars. When our loved ones are deployed and we are walking in the parade, representing them- the community support means even more. The parade becomes a little grander each year. The three flyovers this year- very cool! Please come down to Main Street and wave and cheer for our veterans.
