The Veterans Day parade will begin at 10 a.m. near the Food Lion parking lot in downtown Columbus. Participating military and veteran organizations and many other groups are being recruited daily to march in the parade.

Veterans will be requested to wear their uniforms and medals and spectators will be asked to wear their red, white and blue and to bring their American flags to honor our veterans.
