This year’s Key West Veterans Day parade will begin at 4 p.m. on November 11, starting at the intersection of Duval and Virginia Streets. Coast Guard Sector Key West, located at NAS Key West Trumbo Annex, is this year’s Parade coordinator.
The mayor will join senior military leaders from the community on the dignitaries’ viewing platform near the corner of Fleming and Duval. The public is invited to cheer along the parade participants and pay tribute to the service members.
Over 20 organizations have signed up to march in this year’s parade, according to U.S. Coast Master Chief Petty Officer Matthew Jordan, CG Sector Key West’s Command Master Chief (CMC).
“We are amazed at the number of organizations that are willing to participate in this year’s event. This parade is an excellent tradition in Key West because of the support the Lower Keys Community shows our veterans during the parade and throughout the year,” CMC Jordan says. “It is truly an honor to be a part of the coordination this year and we are looking forward to another great event to honor all veterans – past and present.”
