Description:

The City of Palm Springs proudly presents the 19th annual Palm Springs Veterans Day Parade on Wednesday, November 11 at 3:30 p.m. in downtown Palm Springs. The parade begins at Ramon Road and Palm Canyon Drive and heads northbound on Palm Canyon Drive to Alejo Road. The parade lasts approximately one hour and concludes with a post parade patriotic concert and fireworks finale at the intersection of Amado Road and Palm Canyon Drive.

The parade will carry the Veteran's Administration theme of "Honoring All Who Served" as we pay tribute to all of our veterans for their service in our Armed Forces defending our freedoms. This year marks the 70th Anniversary of the end of WWII and also the 25th Anniversary of Desert Storm/Desert Shield. This parade is one of the largest in Southern California and is supported by military units, marching bands, veterans’ organizations and much more.

The City of Palm Springs has once again been designated as a Regional Site for the observance of Veterans Day by the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are one of just sixty events nationwide to have received this designation. We have been privileged to have members of the Tuskegee Airmen, the Pearl Harbor Survivors, Jewish War Veterans, Buffalo Soldiers, and the Korean and Vietnam Veterans Organization join us in our parades over the last nineteen years.

For more information on this parade, please contact the parade coordinator, Michele Cirone-Collier, at (760) 323-8265 or via email at michele.cirone-collier@palmspringsca.gov.
