In Prescott, Arizona, Veteran’s Day is a special holiday.
With about 7,000 Veterans in our town and a population of 42,000, that means that about 16.5% of our population is made up of U.S. Veterans. That’s a lot! This doesn’t come as a shock considering Prescott has a great VA Hospital, is known as a great place to retire, and has been attracting more retirees, including veterans, as the years pass.
That being said, Prescott celebrates our Veterans the only way we know how… with a parade of course!
On Veteran’s Day this Monday November 11th, from 10:30AM to 1PM, there will be a parade in downtown Prescott to celebrate all those who’ve fought for us, our freedom, and our country, and whom we are honored to know.
Here’s some more info about the parade from the City of Prescott’s website:
“Opening ceremony begins at 10:30am on the main stage (Cortez St and Union St) across from the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza. Parade will begin promptly at 11:00am.
Parade route is as follows: Corner of Cortez St and Willis, south on Cortez St to Goodwin St, Weston Goodwin St to Montezuma (Whiskey Row)), and then north on Montezuma to Sheldon St.
Participation in the parade is free. Please click 2019 Veterans Day Parade Application for a participation application.”
We hope to see you there as it is a beautiful Prescott tradition that honors our Veterans and is fun for the whole family – not to mention there are plenty of fabulous places to eat and drink with your loved after the parade!
Happy early Veteran’s Day to all our Vets out there! We could never say thank you enough for the sacrifices you’ve made for us and for your country! We are forever grateful!
