The San Diego County Veterans Day Parade is one of the city’s largest events honoring San Diego men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Veteran organizations, band and pageantry units, community organizations, and elected officials will walk, dance and ride in cars and on floats down the Pacific Highway parade route, between Cedar Street and G Street. Spectators are encouraged to line the parade route to interact with San Diego veterans and participating groups – there is no cost to attend.
Maj. Gen. Charles (Chuck) Elwood Yeager, pilot of the first recorded flight to break the sound barrier, will serve as the 2012 Grand Marshal of the Parade. The parade also marks the 65th anniversary of Maj. Gen. Yeager’s breaking of the sound barrier.
Location: Pacific Highway between Cedar Street and G Street
Cost: Free; spectators are encouraged to line the parade route to interact with San Diego veterans and participating groups.
