Forecast forces cancellation of Indy Veterans Day parade; service moved indoors

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Due to Thursday’s forecast, the Veterans Day Council of Indianapolis made the decision to cancel the parade.

Also, the weather concerns also led the group to move the Veterans Day Service indoors at the Indiana War Memorial.

The service will be conducted in the Pershing Auditorium, located inside the Indiana War Memorial. The Veterans Day service is still set to get underway 11 a.m.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett are expected to be in attendance at Thursday’s ceremony.

For those attending the indoor service, the group says there will be no public parking available on Michigan Street between Pennsylvania and Meridian streets.

Public parking will be available on both sides of the street for the following:

  • Pennsylvania St., between Michigan and Vermont streets (with the exception of in front of the Minton-Capehart Federal Building)
  • Vermont St., between Pennsylvania and Meridian streets
  • Meridian St., between Vermont and North streets
  • North St., between Meridian and Pennsylvania streets

The Veterans Day Service will still be live-streamed.
