🕐 1 min read

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.

Parade entries will begin staging at 8 a.m. at Panther Island Pavilion, 395 Purcey St., and step off at 10:30 a.m. The parade will proceed south on Main Street to Sundance Square for an 11 a.m. opening ceremony.

After the ceremony, the parade will continue south on Main Street to West Fifth Street, west to Houston Street, then north on Houston Street to return to the staging area.
