Media Veterans Day Parade

The Media Veteran’s Day Parade occurs annually at 11:11 am, usually on 11/11, along State Street. The parade begins with a gun salute in front of Spasso’s Italian Grill near the intersection with Jackson Street and ends in front of the Media Court House, rain or shine.

In the event that Veteran’s Day falls on a weekend, the parade will take place on the official observed date. In other words, if Veteran’s Day is on a Saturday, the parade will be on the proceeding Friday. If Veteran’s Day falls on a Sunday, the parade will take place on the following Monday.
