Bring your patriotic side and prepare to honor our nation's heroes at the Southmost 23rd Annual Veterans Day Parade. This is a wonderful occasion to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served in the United States armed forces, said Cristi Henson, chairperson of the Southmost Veterans Day Parade Committee.
Sponsored by the City of Brownsville and the Southmost Veterans Day Parade Committee, this parade is a symbol of our gratitude and respect for our veterans.
Starting at 2 p.m. at Porter High School, the parade will wind its way down Southmost Boulevard, ending at Cromack Elementary School on East 30th Street.
With over 74 participants, including local schools and high school ROTCs, as well as veterans' groups, this event will be a heartwarming display of community support. The inclusion of floats carrying veterans and playing patriotic music will add a touch of pride and honor to the occasion.
One of the most special aspects of this parade is the nine honorees who will be paraded by vehicles provided by local car dealers. This recognition highlights the incredible contributions of these individuals to our nation's defense.
We encourage everyone to come out and join in this celebration. Let's stand together as a community to show our appreciation and gratitude to the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving our country.
Your presence at the Southmost Veterans Day Parade will be a meaningful way to say "thank you" to our veterans and their families for their sacrifices and commitment.
