2018 Palm Beach County Veterans Day Parade

Posted by Lacey Hagler on Thursday, November 1st, 2018 at 10:37am.

On Sunday, November 4th 2018, over 2,000 veterans and supporters will march in the largest Veterans Day Parade in Palm Beach County.

“Our hometown Veterans Day Parade is a perfect way for the entire community to take a time out and come together to show respect and appreciation for the men and women who have given and continue to give their all to insure the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of the United States of America,” said Ron Bailey, Parade Co-Chair & Vietnam Veteran.

Held for the past 11 years in downtown West Palm Beach, the parade will begin at 2 pm at Rosemary and Clematis Street and will travel east to end at Flagler Drive. While the entire route has prime spots for viewing, the best can be found at the corner of Clematis and Dixie where MC Mike Trim from WPTV will announce participants as they pass. 

The Grand Marshal this year will be Judge Ted Booras, who presides on the Veteran’s Court in Palm Beach County. Aside from his extensive law career, Judge Booras served four years active duty in the United States Marine Corps earning an Honorable Discharge with the rank of sergeant.

The 2018 parade will include more participants than ever before with veteran’s groups, bands, show cars, motorcycles, floats, armed services vehicles and a Car Show featuring over 100 vehicles at the end of the parade route in Flagler Park - from 1 pm to 4 pm.
