A special day to remember those who served.

On behalf of the New Bedford Veterans’ Advisory Board (VAB), the Greater New Bedford Veterans’ Council, and the City of New Bedford we would like to take this time to invite you to the 2014 New Bedford Veteran’s Day Parade!

This year’s parade is being put together in a joint effort between the New Bedford Veterans’ Advisory Board, the Greater New Bedford Veterans Council, as well as the New Bedford Veterans’ Services Department and we would like to see everyone come out and support this year’s Veteran’s Day Parade by participating in it.

This year’s parade will take place on Veteran’s Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014.

The parade will form at the intersection of Rockdale Avenue and Union Street (Buttonwood Park) beginning around 10:30AM and stepping off at 11:00AM.

The parade will march East on Union Street to Pleasant Street. The parade will then turn left and head North on Pleasant Street where it will pass the reviewing stand which will be located on the left in front of the New Bedford Main Library located at 613 Pleasant Street, New Bedford, MA 02740.

A Veteran’s Day service will be held at the reviewing stand following the conclusion of the parade and we invite everyone to stay for it.

If you plan on marching in this year’s parade we ask that you please RSVP so that we can put our marching order together as well as have a list to publish of all organizations participating. Please RSVP by calling the New Bedford Veterans’ Services Department at 508-991-6184 or send an email to cgomes@newbedford-ma.gov

If you do not RSVP because you are unsure whether or not you can participate but then find out you can, we invite you to still show up to the parade. All who want to participate in the parade will be given the opportunity but a call to the Veterans’ Services Department to let us know would be appreciated.
