The Veterans Day parade in downtown Dallas is one you won’t want to miss. In years past, there have been over 150 different units all marching the same route to celebrate our veterans. On Tuesday, November 11, the parade will start at 11 a.m., but we encourage you to show up early to secure your spot in front of Dallas City Hall. These veterans certainly deserve our support!
