Eufaula, Clayton to honor veterans this weekend

Eufaula, Clayton to honor veterans this weekend

The main event for the week is on Saturday, featuring the 2nd Annual Veteran's Parade at 11 a.m. Please come out to the parade and the Honorary Salute and also encourage all Veterans you may know to join us so we can honor them. The Veterans Day Ceremony immediately follows the parade at 7th Street and Forrest Avenue.

Across the Atlanta area, cities are honoring those who defended our country on Veterans Day. Multiple cities are throwing parades and holding special ceremonies to show their appreciation for the fearless men and women who fought and died for our protection.

Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day because the "armistice" or agreement signed between the Allies and Germany ended World War I. It called for the cessation of all hostilities to take effect at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year in 1918.

For additional information and parade route, visit Kiwanis Marietta.

The Southern California Logistics Airport is the Premiere Sponsor of this year's Veterans Day Ceremony.

For additional information on the event, visit Gwinnett County's calendar. For those looking to attend a special event in honor of this special day, there are several events happening around Eufaula this week celebrating Veterans Day, which is November 11.

The City's Veterans Day events are free and open to the public.

The parade presents the opportunity for Douglas County residents to say, "thank you" to those who have obtained, preserved and continue to protect our freedoms. The living history program will be from 9:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m.
