County seeking more participants for Veterans Day Parade

2 mins read

From staff reports

Beaufort County is inviting the community to participate in the Nov. 11 Veterans Day Parade and say thank you to our veterans.

The parade starts at 10 a.m. with the line-up of floats, bands, and civic groups, and all who want to march beginning at 8:30 a.m. The parade route starts in front of Beaufort National Cemetery, will head down Boundary Street, curve onto Bay Street, and end at the intersection of Boundary and Bladen Streets.

Due to Covid concerns, the County parade committee will work closely with the city of Beaufort to monitor numbers to make sure the public and all parade participants remain safe. Beaufort County and the City of Beaufort will review each month to address the COVID situation. If the COVID situation continues to deteriorate and the parade is canceled, a cancellation announcement will follow immediately.

Be sure to look in downtown stores for posters made by local students saying thank you to our veterans.

Participants can find applications on the County website.

Visit www.beaufortcountysc.gov/veterans-affairs to download the application. Every community group, children’s group, civic organization, and community member is encouraged to show their community spirit and our veterans how much they are appreciated.

The deadline to submit parade applications is Sunday, Oct. 31. In case of inclement weather, the parade will be canceled. For more information, contact Beaufort County Veterans Affairs at 843-255-6880.

Broadcast Support

Those interested may also submit a video recording for the County Channel TV and social media platforms if interested. Organizations can have a 30-seconds messag thanking our veterans. Bands and performers can submit two songs or short performances with a military theme.
