14th Annual Veterans On Parade This Saturday in Marion

MARION — The 14th annual Veterans on Parade takes place Saturday morning at 10 in Marion.

The event was originally scheduled for Sept. 8, but had to be postponed due to heavy rain from the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon that affected the area.

The parade will honor first responders and veterans from southern Illinois, southeast Missouri and northwest Kentucky according to Ed Davis, president and co-founder of the Veterans on Parade organization.

Davis says there will be two assembly points for the parade.

Davis says registration will go on until the time the parade begins. To register or for more information, call Ed Davis at 314-375-7170, 618-967-9415 or email edward2791@att.net.
