Midtown Manhattan will shut down for hours this afternoon as the most important Veterans Day parade within the US attracts hundreds of spectators and marchers honoring those that serve within the navy.
New York Metropolis’s 103rd Annual Veterans Day Parade will kick off round 12 pm at twenty sixth Avenue and Fifth Avenue earlier than ending at forty fifth Avenue and Fifth Avenue.
Greater than 20,000 members will march as hundreds of spectators will arrange camp alongside the parade path to catch a glimpse of the greater than 280 marching models, 25 floats and 150 autos cruising down Fifth Avenue.
Digital watchers can catch the occasion on WABC, American Forces Community or Navy.com. The printed might be accessible from 12:30 pm to three p.m.
Much like current years, the Opening Ceremony might be a wreath procession to the Everlasting Gentle Memorial in Madison Sq. Park as a substitute of the standard speaker program resulting from well being and security considerations.
The parade will start at twenty sixth Avenue and Fifth Avenue and finish at forty fifth Avenue and Fifth Avenue.United Conflict Veterans Council
