2020 Veterans Day Parade

 

The City of Prescott is excited to announce that the 2020 Veterans Day Parade will be held in Downtown Prescott on Wednesday, November 11, 2020. Opening ceremonies will take place at 10:30am on the stage at the intersection of Cortez St. and Union St., with parade beginning at 11:00am.

 

While we anticipate some changes to the event due to COVID-19 concerns, we believe they will be a part of new changes that we all have been learning to adapt to. Social distancing and mask will be highly recommended

 

This year’s parade theme is:  Honoring the Military Family:  Courage – Strength – Sacrifice.  The City of Prescott is inviting parade entrants from the community to compete in seven categories this year.  Each entry category will have a first palace winner and all entries will compete for a Best overall award.   The categories are:
