2020 NEW YORK CITY VETERANS DAY PARADE
*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 11/11/2020
Veterans Day will look a bit different this year, but we will continue our traditions on Fifth Avenue and beyond! This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II. We will also commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the start of the Korean War and the 30th Anniversary of Operation Desert Shield. Our Featured Service is the U.S. Navy.
