Several years ago, a small group of patriotic volunteers formed a nonprofit organization to host an annual Colorado Springs Veterans Day Parade to honor all veterans and to inspire community awareness while paying tribute to the service and sacrifices veterans have endured in the pursuit of freedom.
This years Colorado Springs Veterans Day Parade will on Saturday, November 2, 2019 starting at 10:00 am. The parade route is on Tejon between Boulder and Vermijo in downtown Colorado Springs.
The Colorado Springs Veterans Day parade has grown to be one of the biggest and best in the United States.
Active Duty Units from the Air Force Academy, Ft. Carson, Peterson & Schriever Air Force bases representing branches of the Air Force, Army and Navy regularly participate, as well as Canadian Units stationed in the Colorado Springs Area bases.
The Colorado Springs Veterans Day Parade is entirely funded through donations from local businesses and individual contributors. It costs approximately $50,000 annually to host and those funds are received through monetary as well as in-kind donations.
