Albany's Veterans Day Parade

The Largest Veterans Day Parade West of the Mississippi!

The 63rd Annual Albany Veterans Day Parade will begin its march through the streets of Historic Downtown Albany on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 beginning at 11:00am.


Veteran’s – Heroes at Home This year’s theme salutes our veterans who have came back home and made our communities a better place for all.






Standing above the rest, “The Greatest Generation” our World War II veterans will be highlighted as the ​Grand Marshals in the 2014 Albany Veterans Day parade. They went off to fight and then came home, settling back into our communities, rolling up their sleeves and getting to work. We have much to thank them for and for this reason above the rest we wish to salute “The Greatest Generation” as our Grand Marshals.
