Annual Veterans Day Parade to be held in Killeen on Nov. 11

Veterans Day Parade

Annual parade returns after being canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19

The annual Central Texas Community Veterans Day Parade will march through historic downtown Killeen on Thursday, November 11 at 11 a.m. The Grand Marshal will be Brig. Gen. Monté L. Rone, who is Deputy Commanding General for Maneuver at Fort Hood.

This year’s parade theme is “Honoring All Who Served-Past and Present.” Prior to the parade (at 10:45a.m.), the Veterans Administration will present Mayor ProTem Debbie Nash-King with a certificate of recognition on the steps of City Hall, as Killeen has been designated as a regional site for the Veterans Day celebration. Ms. Nash-King will also present a proclamation from the City during this time.

 Each year the Central Texas Area Veteran Activity Committee (AVAC) sponsors the event. They’re comprised of all the veteran organizations from Nolanville, Harker Heights and Killeen.

 All are invited to participate and parade entries will be accepted through Nov. 10 at  www.centex-avac.org. There is no cost to enter.

 The parade route starts at West Avenue D, next to City Hall, and travels from College Street down Avenue D to 8th Street, then 8th Street to Sprott Street and Sprott Street to Gray Street, ending at Avenue C. Spectators should arrive early to secure the best parking and viewing spots along the route.

 If you have questions, please contact the parade co-chair, Mr. Guadalupe Lopez at (254) 702-0465.
