The 1st Annual Philadelphia Veterans Parade

Philadelphia’s first Veterans Day parade marched through Center City on Sunday, November 8th, winding its way from Broad and Walnut to Independence Hall.

Police on motorcycles led the way, followed by uniformed horsemen in gleaming silver helmets with black plumes from the Philadelphia City Troop Cavalry, established in 1774. They were followed by dignitaries in classic cars, one of them a Pearl harbor vet.

The United states Military Academy and the United States Naval Academy Bands perform in the first annual Veterans Day Parade.

We want to thank PECO and Independence Blue Cross for their generous support for veterans.
