Now in its 22nd year, the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade is one of the premier Veterans Day events in the nation, with tens of thousands of spectators. This year’s parade theme is “Out of the Trenches, A Century of Remembrance,” and commemorates the 100th year of the signing of the Armistice, which ended World War I. Since 2013, Honoring Arizona’s Veterans has coordinated and promoted this large-scale special event. As in past years, the Parade Grand Marshals will include seven eras of Veterans: World War II, Korean War, Vietnam, Cold War, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. There will also be a Celebrity Grand Marshal. The parade typically boasts more than 100 entries, featuring patriotic floats, high school marching bands, JROTC marching units, color guards, Veterans Service Organizations, animals, novelty units and much, much more. Although the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade is traditionally held on Nov. 11th, out of respect to local church services along the parade route, this year the parade is moving from Sunday to Monday Nov. 12, 2018, at 11 a.m. The parade starts at Montebello and Central runs southbound, then turns East on Camelback Road, and then turns South on 7th Street and de-stages at Indian School Road.
