HOW TO BE IN THE PARADE
All Vietnam veterans are invited to be in the parade, regardless of where you now call home. Every veteran who plans to be in the parade must let us know so that we can be sure we have enough vehicles to provide transportation. Veterans who wish to enter their own vehicle or float are welcome to do so, again, we just need to know. We encourage individuals as well as businesses, organizations, and other groups to enter floats.There’s no charge for cars or floats or veterans, but we do need to know you’re coming. (Important note: We do require that all signage be in support of the veterans. See application for more information.)
Download application here. Those in the parade must be at the Justice Center at 9 a.m.

POST-PARADE PROGRAM
After the parade there will be a welcome home program at the Southern Ground Amphitheater featuring stories from veterans, local color guard, and music of the era specially requested by Vietnam Veterans and performed by Bombshells United. Though we can’t be exactly sure, we anticipate the program will begin around 1 p.m. Go here for directions to the amphitheater.
