After hosting a virtual Veterans Day Service last year, the Veterans Day Council of Indianapolis is excited for a full return of Veterans Day festivities!
J. Stewart Goodwin, Brigadier General USAF (Ret) executive director for the Indiana War Memorials Commission joined us today to share how you can celebrate around Indy this year for the holiday.
There will be a Veterans Day Awards Breakfast, Veterans Day Service and live parade on November 11, 2021.
The awards breakfast will take place at 8:00 a.m. in the Arabian Room at the Murat Shrine in Indianapolis. Tickets are $20 each and don’t include parking.
The Veterans Day Service will be hosted at 11:00 am on the north steps of the Indiana War Memorial located at 55 E. Michigan St, Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Service will be live-streamed and available to view at the Veterans Day Council of Indianapolis website: veteransdayindy.org.
The Veterans Day parade in downtown Indianapolis will immediately follow the Service starting at noon. The parade route begins at Michigan and Pennsylvania Streets, moves south on Pennsylvania to New York Street, west to Meridian Street, north on Meridian Street and finishes at North Street.
During the Veterans Day events, Hoosier veterans will be honored for their military service, past and present and local businesses will be recognized for their dedication and support of veterans and active-duty servicemembers.
