About

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the community celebration honoring Veterans of all service branches.

The Veterans Parade was started in 1986 by a group of volunteers who recognized a need for Clark County to honor veterans. Through rain, sun, and even snow, dedicated volunteers have been instrumental in ensuring the annual Veterans Parade.

Volunteers are needed to assist with the production of the parade. Tasks include helping parade participants line up, register new groups, assist with preparations for the ceremony, and more!

Sign up as a volunteer today!

The parade attracts more than 120 entries with approximately 2,500 individuals marching or riding in the parade. The public is encouraged to attend and support veterans and troops at one of the largest Department of Veteran Affairs-sanctioned veterans parade's on the West Coast.

This is a free community celebration - if you can't help with the parade, please feel free to join as a spectator!
