Veterans Day

Veterans Day 11-11-11 at 11:11 AM

Let our Veterans know they’re number 1 on 11/11/11 at 11:11 AM!

On Veteran’s Day, Friday, November 11th 2011 at 11:11AM, a massing of the Colors and Veterans Day Parade will take place in Louisville on West Main Street from 4th to 9th Streets for the first time in many years.

This is a unique coincidence of dates (11/11/11) and a group of people have put together this tribute to veterans, their families, current members of the Armed Services and their families.

It includes 50+ Color Guards, the 113th Army Band from Ft. Knox, a Medal of Honor recipient as Grand Marshall, members of the Tuskegee Airmen as special guests, and members of veteran’s organizations. Other components include displays of restored military equipment and Kentucky’s 40et8 boxcar on display outside the Frazier History Museum. Attractions along West Main Street have arranged special programs for the day, and many will be offering special discounts.
