Veterans+Day+Parade+%26+Celebration++in+Downtown+Wilmington

War takes its toll on many people, but none so much as the soldiers who fought in the war and served in the military during wartime. The physical and mental pain can last for years.

On November 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed that Armistice Day would be a federal holiday to honor those members of the armed forces killed during World War 1.   On June 1, 1954, November 11  was designated as a day to honor American Veterans of all Wars.

This year,  the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Leland will sponsor a Veterans Day Breakfast at the Leland Cultural Arts Center, located at 1212 Magnolia Village Way on November 11, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.  Get there early, as this is just the start of the festivities.

From there, many Vets will be headed to downtown Wilmington to participate in the annual Veterans Parade.   Come down and experience marching bands and groups from across southeastern North Carolina.  The parade starts at 11:00 a.m.   After the parade, the public is invited to a gathering at Third Street and Red Cross Street for a celebration and informational fair featuring food trucks and entertainment.

We honor all Veterans and say thank you on this day and every day of the year.
