Veterans Day Parade draws thousands of supporters to West Richland
WEST RICHLAND, Wash. — The annual Veterans Day Parade took place along Van Giesen Street in West Richland Saturday morning.
Members of the community lined the streets in the rain to show support for service members and their families for over an hour.
Many veterans rode their motorcycles, walked their service dogs and waved from decorated floats and classic cars to those who showed up.
Community members said it’s one of their favorite traditions each year.
“I love this parade, especially watching the whole community come together and all of the organizations. This really brings families together,” Kennewick resident Amanda McDonald said.
The entire parade was more than a mile long.
The atmosphere was filled with marching band music, sirens from local law enforcement and American flags.
The annual tradition will take place again next year.
