2019 NYC Veterans Day Parade Application is now available online.
This year’s Parade commemorates the centennial of the Veterans Day (formerly Armistice Day, 1919-2019). At 11am on November 11, 1918, the guns of World War I fell silent as the Armistice ending the fighting took hold. One year later, in 1919, communities around the world marked the first anniversary of the Armistice with reflective and commemorative events. New York City’s observations included a parade on Fifth Avenue. After World War II, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, honoring those of all eras. This year marks the 100th observation of this day.
The United States Marine Corps is this year’s featured military branch. As always, the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard will also be represented.Read more
