Veterans Day Parade honoring Afghanistan vets this Saturday

By Ethan Nahté

The 2022 Veterans Day Parade will be this Saturday, 11 a.m. on Nov. 5. This year, the parade will be honoring Afghanistan veterans along Mena Street, but U.S. veterans from all wars, potentially dating back to WWII, will be represented.

Line-up for the parade will begin at 10 a.m. at The Crossing Church. The parade will travel the length of Mena Street.

Entries will be accepted even the morning of the event. Show up at 10 a.m. and notify the organizers and they will find you a place within the parade line-up. There will be judges for the parade. Last year there were approximately 30 entries. 

If there is a heavy rain like the previous Saturday, the parade will be postponed. A light rain will not cancel the event.
