Veterans Day Parade

Veterans Day-Parade 2013

Veteran’s Day Parade along East Ocean Boulevard and the Veteran’s Day Ceremony at Memorial Park in Stuart on Monday November 11, 2013.

Halpatiokee Chapter, DAR took part in the City of Stuart’s, annual Veterans Day parade. Each year there are Veterans Day observances across the nation, from festive parades and ceremonies to military displays and touching tributes.  Martin County joined the rest of the nation in remembering the service, and sacrifice that America’s Veterans have made for our country.

Unlike Memorial Day, which solemnly pays tribute to those solders lost in conflict, Veterans Day is a festive occasion that honors and celebrates Veterans past and present who are still with us today.

The parade ran from east to west on Ocean Boulevard  and started at High School Avenue and ended at Memorial Park. The Parade started at 10 a.m. and ends approximately 1 hour later at Memorial Park with a dedication and awarding of trophies for parade groups.
