Beginning at precisely 11:11 a.m. in downtown Atlanta on Peachtree Street, the 37th annual Veterans Day Parade provides a moving tribute to those who have served their country in the armed forces. The parade is sponsored by the Georgia Veterans Day Association, and this year's official theme is "The Battles Between the Wars," which highlights the years immediately following the end of the Vietnam War up until Sept. 11, 2001. Residents of our apartments in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as their friends and families, are encouraged to honor our American service men and women by attending this event.
The parade will go south on Peachtree Street before turning right on Baker Street and then left on Marietta Street. The parade will proceed down Marietta Street where it will come to an end at the intersection of Marietta Street and Centennial Olympic Park Drive. Streets on and around the parade route may begin closing to everyday traffic at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the parade, so allow for enough time to use alternative routes when going to your intended parking location. Both the Georgia Aquarium and The World of Coke have parking lots that may be utilized by parade-goers, and there are also several pay-for-parking options located in this part of the city. For maximum convenience, however, you may want to forget about parking and simply use MARTA to get to and from the parade.
If you are a veteran of the armed forces and wish to participate in the mass veterans' march, please contact parade officials.
The Veterans Day Festival
The fun doesn't end when the parade is over, however. The Veterans Day Festival which follows the parade will feature the 116th Army Band this year and will last until 2:30 p.m. It will take place at near The World of Coca-Cola at Pemberton Place.
