Veterans Day Parade steps off at 10 a.m.

Veterans Day observed, Nov. 11

A new wrinkle in parade



Veterans Day is set for the 11th day of the 11th month and in Granville the parade will take place starting at 10 a.m. honoring those who have served the nation in the armed forces. The parade will step off at its regular 10 a.m. time from its start on East Main Street Friday morning.

If you’re waiting down the street that day, you won’t get to see the new addition to the parade. 

Anyone recalling the rededication of the World War II Veterans Memorial Clock from September might also remember John Freed’s request that the parade stop at this location and place a wreath at the base of the clock.

Veterans organizations were happy to answer this request and a wreath was hung on the clock pole for the first time last fall.

The parade will begin and stop just as it starts up Main Street from East Main Street,. And then the wreath will be placed.

Although a wreath will be placed at the clock, 21-gun salute volleys will only take place at the bridge and in the park, he said.

After the troops form back up the parade will proceed down Main Street to the bridge where the Seabees will place a wreath in the Mettowee River in honor of Granville naval veterans.

The parade will continue down West Main Street to Veterans Park for observances including the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner,” raising of the flag to full staff and the laying of wreathes at the monuments. A speaker for the park ceremony has not been announced.

The parade will take place rain or shine, organizers said.
