Veterans Day gives Americans everywhere the opportunity to show their appreciation for everyone who has served in the U.S. armed forces. People in Crosswinds Kyle have several great options to honor those who served.
Check out the San Marcos Veterans Day Parade
This year’s San Marcos Veterans Day Parade theme is “Honoring All Who Served” with the City of San Marcos sponsoring. They’ve invited everyone to participate including veterans’ groups, civic clubs, bands, drill teams, public officials, youth teams, and even classic vehicles.
The parade begins at 10 am and travels through historic downtown San Marcos. Come to the parade hungry. You can get your fill at the free biscuit and gravy breakfast served on the County Courthouse lawn at 8:30 am. Breakfast or not, come early because there will be entertainment before the parade starts.
Everyone ages five and older can show their support by joining the Kiwanis Club Kids Bicycle Brigade. Kids decorate their bikes, bring their helmets, and ride it at the Courthouse lawn. The event takes place before the parade from 9 to 10 am. Kids can spruce their bikes with flags, signs, and streamers. Training wheels and scooters also welcome.
Head to Austin Veterans Day Parade
Running for more than 17 years, the Austin Veterans Day Parade Foundation is an all-volunteer event that honors military veterans. This year’s Austin Veterans Day Parade theme is “Service” because a veteran’s service is never-ending. They also plan to highlight the great services they provide to Travis County veterans.
The parade yields about 20,000 attendees every year and consists of more than 100 floats and organizations. The parade starts at 9:30 am at the Ann Richards / Congress Avenue Bridge and travels towards Texas State Capitol. Spectators can view the parade along Congress Ave. At 11 am, a ceremony takes place on the south steps of the Capitol.
