60th Annual Veterans Day Parade This Sunday, 11/5!
The 60th annual Veterans Day Parade will be held this Sunday, November 5th.The parade, sponsored by VFW 2179 and the Township of Middletown, will assemble at 12:30 p.m. at Bayview School, 300 Leonardville Road, and step off at 1:00 p.m. The parade will then proceed through Campbell’s Junction, turning right at Cherry Tree Farm Road, right at Wilson Avenue and right at Garrett Place ending at the rear entrance to VFW Post 2179. Be sure to get the best seat in the house at the reviewing stand at Wilson Avenue and Chapman Terrace – a great place to watch the parade and see live performances!
The theme of this year’s parade is “Thank a Veteran". We hope to see the parade route lined with supporters and that you will head to the VFW Post 2179, 1 Veterans Lane, Port Monmouth immediately following the parade for a complimentary lunch and the opportunity to speak with local veterans. There will also be displays, awards, DJ music, and a “Message to a Veteran” graffiti wall.
