Reno's 2012 Veterans Day Parade is on Sunday, November 11. The parade route is along S. Virginia Street in downtown Reno, starting with ceremonies at Powning Veterans Memorial Park at 11 a.m., then proceeding north to 5th Street. The parade will include veterans groups, high school marching bands and ROTC units, civic organizations, and patriotic citizens. This is the biggest Veterans Day observance in the state and you'll see plenty of Nevada's politicians and other prominent residents - past parades have been attended by local, state, and federal office holders, and business and civic leaders.
