This Friday the city of Huntsville will celebrate Veteran’s Day with a huge parade downtown. This kid-friendly event is joined by several others throughout the city – how will your family choose to honor the Vets? We hope this list of events for Veterans Day in Huntsville will help you plan.
Walking history is just one of the many reasons to bring the little ones out! Outside of the parade there will be food trucks, singing, lines of musical bands, big brothers and sisters marching in their JROTC’s and the many community groups that support soldiers and their family members from all across Huntsville and Madison County.
