Fort Worth to honor veterans with downtown parade


Fort Worth will celebrate Veterans Day Saturday Nov. 10 with a parade in downtown Fort Worth.

The parade will step off about 11 a.m. and march down Main Street from the Tarrant County Courthouse.

This is a salute to all veterans, and special recognition of the centennial of the end of World War I and the subsequence establishment of Armistice Day.

The parade will feature more than 5,000 participants, including veterans, active military, Junior ROTC groups, school bands and civic and patriotic organizations. Grand marshal is Jim Hodgson, a Texas World War I Centennial Commemoration director.
