The 19th Annual Palm Spring Veterans Day Parade starts at 3:30 p.m. and is not an event that you will want to miss out on. The parade starts in Downtown Palm Springs at Ramon Road and ends on Alejo Road. Make sure to stick around after the parade for the post-parade patriotic concert that will take place on the main stage that will be set up at the intersection of Amando Road and Palm Canyon Drive. The concert will end with a fireworks show that will start around 5 p.m. The concert and parade are free and everyone is invited!

If you are looking to get a little active this Veterans Day, then make sure to check out the Veterans Day Heroes 5K! The 5K, which starts at 1:30 p.m. gives all participants the opportunity to honor military members and support various organizations that help both active duty and veterans. Participants can run or walk the course. At the end of the course, all participants will be presented with a carnation to commemorate their victory by an active duty Marine. Right after the run, make sure to stick around for the Palm Spring Veterans Day Parade and concert!
