Vetertans Day Parade & Traditional Memorial Service in Downtown Bristol!

November 05, 2014

For well over 50 years the veterans of Bristol have honored their fallen comrades with a parade and memorial service in downtown Bristol. Whether through years of recognition or obscurity the parade has reminded the region of the sacrifice of our own citizens in wars and military engagements since the beginning of our nation. The annual event will once again be held in the streets of downtown Bristol on Saturday November 8. Any veteran is welcome to participate in the parade. Line-up begins on Morrison Blvd at 8am, with the parade beginning at 10am using the traditional parade route. Following the parade, approximately at 11am, citizens will gather for the traditional memorial service at the Bristol War Memorial at Cumberland Square Park.
