We are excited to announce the upcoming Veterans Day Parade in Media, PA. This is our 60th annual parade.
This year, we are celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the American Legion. All A.L. posts in Pennsylvania that have a color guard are invited to represent their post and walk in the parade! Representatives can walk on the parade, and we are able to accommodate those who are unable to walk.
Another of our goals is to encourage Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to join the American Legion. The American Legion is also the focus of the annual essay contest. The top 3 essayists will be invited to read their work at the ceremony after the parade.
The 2019 Annual Veterans Day Parade
The parade will begin at 11:11 AM on 11/11 at the corner of State and Edgmont Streets. In the event of rain, we’ll have the parade at the Media Theater.
The Grand Marshal of 2019 is Robert Johns, the PA State Commander of the American Legion. Following the parade will be a ceremony at the Delaware County Courthouse on Front Street.
SEPTA trolley line 101 will be shut down at 10 a.m. on 11/11. However, it will still be running up to Providence Road, so you could still take the transit to the parade.
