Veterans Parade: Saturday, Nov 10th at 10am

parade logoYou do not want to miss the Sixth Annual Southern Pines Veterans Parade on Saturday, November 10th, 2018, at 10am in downtown Southern Pines.

What can you expect? The Veterans Parade rumbles with excitement ... literally!  Hundreds of motorcycles open the parade on their way to the Veterans Memorial Wreath Laying in Carthage, NC. And look up! Vintage military aircraft of The Bandit Flight Team fly over and the precision Skydiving Angels from The Children of Fallen Heroes drop in, literally. You'll see (and  hear) marching bands, ROTC groups, active-duty soldiers, boy scouts, girl scouts, fire trucks, antique vehicles and of course ... American Veterans.  There are even a few surprises to delight kids of all ages.

Bring your kids, grandchildren, friends and neighbors to honor the men and women who have served in our US Armed Forces since WWII. The parade will proceed rain or shine. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram  for up to the minute updates on our Sixth Annual Veterans Parade!
