Post by mfrance » Sun Sep 19, 2021 7:35 pm

The Petaluma Veterans Day Parade proudly returns for 2021! Join in honoring past, present and future service members.

The parade begins at 1pm in downtown Petaluma. Music and special recognitions will take place before and after the parade in the gazebo at Walnut Park (D Street and Petaluma Blvd.)

This year’s theme, “Welcome Home to All Vietnam Veterans,” pays special tribute to the men and woman of the armed forces who served from 1961 to 1975, the 14 years that Congress officially recognizes as the Vietnam-era.
