Beaufort Veterans Day Parade
Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for our veterans and their service to America. In celebration, the Beaufort County Department of Veterans Affairs is hosting the 2021 Veterans Day Parade through downtown Beaufort on Thursday, November 11th.
The parade will begin with the lineup of floats, bands and civic groups at 830am by the Beaufort National Cemetery and offically starts at 10am. It will follow the traditional route and end at the intersection of Boundary and Bladen Streets after a full “loop,” covering Boundary, Carteret, Bay and Bladen Streets.
Due to Covid concerns, the County parade committee will work closely with the city of Beaufort to monitor numbers to make sure the public and all parade participants remain safe. Beaufort County and the City of Beaufort will review each month to address the COVID situation. If the COVID situation continues to deteriorate and the parade is canceled, a cancellation announcement will follow immediately.
New this year, be sure to look in downtown stores for posters made by local students saying thank you to our veterans.
Every community group, children’s group, civic organization, and community member is encouraged to show their community spirit and our veterans how much they are appreciated. The deadline to submit parade applications is Sunday, October 31.
In case of inclement weather, the parade will be canceled.
