Veterans Day of Honor in Indy This Saturday


This Saturday is the 5th Annual Veterans Day of Honor celebration in Independence and there will be plenty of activities involved with this event.


The day gets started with the Veterans Appreciation Breakfast at the Civic Center from 7:00 am – 8:30 am.


Then at 8:45 am at the Park Oval will be the “Run for the Colors” 5K fun run and walk. Unlike years past, this year's fun run is free. Independence Chamber of Commerce Director Lisa Wilson goes into more detail.


Also included in the celebration is a cornhole tournament, the Veterans Square Memorial Tribute, a musical presentation by the 312th Army Band, a car show, and a bean feed at the 4H buildings in Riverside park at noon.


To wrap up the day's festivities will be the Veterans Day of Honor Parade at 2:00 pm. Wilson tells us that there will be a very special start to the parade.


For more information about the parade or if you would like to be in the parade, contact the Independence Chamber at 620-331-1890.
