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.
