The Mansfield community will come together to celebrate the men and women who have served our country at the Veterans Day Parade and Salute.
The patriotic parade returns to Historic Downtown Mansfield at 10 a.m. Nov. 5. After the parade there will be a musical patriotic salute in front of The LOT Downtown. The parade will feature more than 30 floats, a fly over and more.
This parade has established itself as one of the best ways to show your support for veterans in the Metroplex. The parade will begin at St. Jude Catholic Church and head north to East Broad Street. It will end at the intersection of South Main Street and Dallas Street.
The patriotic salute ends the day’s celebrations. It includes musical acts by local marching bands and choirs, speeches, and more.
In addition to the parade, the city is also hosting two military exhibits. The “Women, Aviation and WWII” exhibit is an intimate collection of items celebrating women’s participation in World War II on the homefront and aboard. This exhibit is on display at the Mansfield Historical Museum, 102 N. Main St., through Nov. 30.
The “Remembering Our Fallen” traveling exhibit returns this year to The Lot Downtown, 110 S. Main St. from Nov. 4-6. This photographic memorial display honors the men and women who lost their lives following the global War on Terror. As part of this exhibit, a volunteer fire watch of local veterans and supporters will work in shifts to watch over the display through its duration and even overnight.
