Central Texas Area Veterans Advisory Committee organizes annual tribute.
The Central Texas Community Veterans Day Parade will march through historic downtown Killeen Monday, November 11, at 11 a.m. Retired Master Sergeant Clifford Petrey will serve as grand marshal.
This year’s parade theme is “Honoring All Who Served.”
Parade entries will be accepted through November 10 at avac-centex.com. There is no cost to enter.
The parade route travels from College Street down Avenue D to 8th Street, 8th Street to Sprott Street and Sprott Street to Gray Street ending at Avenue C. Spectators should arrive early to secure the best parking and viewing spots along the route.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has selected Killeen’s parade as a regional site, one of just three in Texas. An official certificate will be presented to Mayor Jose Segarra prior to the parade start.
