The Largest Veterans Day Parade West of the Mississippi!

The 64th Annual Albany Veterans Day Parade will begin its march through the streets of Historic Downtown Albany on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 beginning at 11:00am.


“ Veteran’s: STARS Unlimited – STRIPES United“  This year’s theme salutes our veterans who are all shining stars and united under the American Flag. 






Our Korean War Veterans have been asked to step forward so we may honor them as this year’s Grand Marshals. From June 1950 to July 1953 the veterans of this war endured and suffered much. As they came home, they continued to step forward to give their all within their communities and for our country.The Korean War is often referred to as “The Forgotten War”. We make a pledge that these veterans will be forgotten no more. We have much to thank them for and for this reason above the rest, we ask you to join with us as we salute our Korean War veterans as our Grand Marshal’s this coming Veterans Day.






We are proud to again welcome Coastal Farm & Ranch as this years Presenting Parade Sponsor.

Their slogan, “Just what the country needs” is a perfect match as our veterans are the best of the best and just what our country needs.
