The Military Family: Courage - Strength - Sacrifice
The Opening Ceremony begins at 10:30, as the City of Prescott celebrates Veteran’s Day with the traditional annual parade. During this time, several people will be recognized and honored, and the Salute to the American Flag, along with the singing of the National Anthem will take place.
The Prescott Veteran’s Day Parade, with a theme of “Honoring the Military Family: Courage - Strength - Sacrifice,” will start at 11 PM.
The Parade will be live-streamed at the City of Prescott Facebook page and, with the cooperation of various technology, at our Facebook page for CopperState News.
In discussing the Veteran’s Day Parade, Mayor Greg Mengarelli said, "This is a time when our community and our nation honors all veterans for their service and sacrifice. I am proud of our patriotic and veteran friendly community. I want to personally thank all of our veterans for their service to this great nation.”
The weather report is for cool temperatures, but lots of sunshine. By 11 AM, when the parade begins, the temperature should be around 46º. No worries, according to AccuWeather, it really will feel like it’s 55º, if that helps you any!
It is recommended that you bring your own chair, and water bottle. Dress warmly and wear a jacket and gloves if your hands tend to get cold easily. Flags and patriotic apparel are always welcome!
Mengarelli also explained, "The parade route follows Cortez, Goodwin, and Montezuma. There should be plenty of space to spread out, and we will have hand washing stations and signs reminding citizens to do the right thing. Please continue to take personal responsibility.”
