Honor veterans from all branches of service at The Lough Legacy Veterans Parade! The Lough Legacy Veterans Parade has been a Vancouver tradition for 32 years. Each year approximately 2,500 people from 120 groups march to honor our community’s veterans, including 45 scout troops, 200 vehicles, and 60+ animals. This year, the parade begins at the east end of Officers Row at East Reserve Street. It will head west along Evergreen Blvd, past Officers Row and Providence Academy into downtown Vancouver.
The parade will be preceded by the Veterans Day Ceremony in the Providence Academy Ballroom, presented with support from the Community Military Appreciation Committee (CMAC) and Columbia Credit Union. The ceremony will recognize local veterans, honor the 2018 Grand Marshals of the parade for their service to our community and our country, and feature a speech from the Reviewing Officer. Ceremony attendees may view the parade after the ceremony from limited covered seating on the Academy lawn.
Groups and organizations that would like to honor our nation’s veterans are encouraged to participate. Past participants include numerous veterans service organizations representing all branches of the service, local high school marching bands, several college and high school ROTC groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops from throughout the region, equestrian units, and military and civilian vehicle collector clubs.
Honor our veterans by volunteering at The Lough Legacy Veterans Parade.
