Celebrating Military Service Parade
August 24, 2013 at 5:00 pm
The Daffodil Festival and City of Tacoma partner for a “Celebration of Military Service” Parade, Saturday evening, August 24th in Downtown Tacoma.
Many decades ago, Tacoma hosted Armed Forces Day parades through downtown, and now The Daffodil Festival is proud to re-establish a new tradition with the 1st annual “Celebration of Military Service” Parade. The purpose of the parade is to celebrate and honor the large number of active duty and retired veterans living in and around Pierce County. This event is purposely not scheduled around a holiday or homecoming, but rather on a special August evening honoring those from military service.
Pierce County is home to the largest joint base in the country. With more than 44,000 active military personal on base, JBLM is, by far, the largest employer in the county. With a base population of more than 100,000 people, added to the large number of veterans and veterans’ groups in the area, this county needs a signature military event.
The parade will include active military VIP’s, marching units, notable retired VIP’s, community floats, select high school bands, ROTC and JROTC units, veteran organizations, motorcycle units and historical veteran groups.
Pacific Avenue from 13th to 24th
