Nacogdoches Celebrates Veterans Day With Parade And Salute
Saturday, November 6th, 2021 the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office is hosting their annual Veteran's Day Parade on the brick streets of downtown Nacogdoches. It will start bright and early at 10 am.
The parade will follow the traditional parade route through the downtown area. They ask that you line the streets along Hospital and Main Street and show support for our veterans.
Join in on the cheering and waving of U.S. flags along the parade route or any way that you see fit to show your patriotism and gratitude for their sacrifices.
Be In The Parade
There is still time to get in the parade yourself. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or just call the Sheriff's office at 936-560-7794.
Check-in time for all the floats and vehicles is between 8:45 am and 9:30 am. Walking groups and animal groups should check in between 9:30 am and 9:45 am.
The check-in table will be set up at the Thomas J. Rusk school parking lot at the corner of Arnold Street and North Fredonia Street.
Reverend John L. Ramsey will be the grand marshal for this year's parade. He was born in 1922 in the Fairview Community east of Nacogdoches.
He is a WW II veteran that proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy. He served in the Pacific theater, leaving for Japan in late 1945.
Not many of our servicemen and women from World War II are still with us. What an amazing opportunity for all involved to thank him for his service.
Following the parade the Nacogdoches Sheriff's Office will provide a luncheon for veterans and their guests starting at 11 am.
