There are certain perks associated with visiting a military town like Virginia Beach. One is the opportunity to see awe-inspiring flight shows, but another is that you get to celebrate patriotic occasions in a big way. On Veterans Day, November 11, the city will host one of the best parades associated with the event that the area has seen. Starting at 9 a.m., more than 100 units will march or perform along the route that starts at 16th Street and Atlantic Avenue.

The parade will culminate at the Tidewater Veterans Memorial on 19thStreet before noon. At this time, a formal ceremony will be held across the street at 1000 19th Street.

A Grand Night for Singing
