Veterans Day Parade 2013: In Photos

On Sunday, November 10th, Harrisonburg paid tribute to our brave veterans and active duty military members at the annual Veterans Day Parade. The event was well-timed to celebrate both  Veterans Day and the 238th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps. The parade featured more than 45 entries that represented local veterans groups, school and civic organizations, Harrisonburg businesses, and patriotic individuals.

The parade was presented by Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance and proudly sponsored by American National University, the City of Harrisonburg, and the Dayton American Legion Post 27.
