Saluting Buffalo Soldiers
SALUTING ALL VETERANS
The Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade is hosted annually by the City of Fort Worth through extensive, generous support from the Mayor's Office, City Council, as well as the Fort Worth Police and Fiire Departsments.
Volunteers and supporters are needed to help with all aspects of this year's event. They ensure its success. Planning, coordinating, advising and executing are all critical elements and starts months before the event and run through our salute day.
Being part of our annual Veterans Day salute is as easy as registering online, or printing out the registration form and mailing it to the planning committee... and there's no fee to be part of this celebratory parade.
