Each November, the City of Bowling Green celebrates Veteran’s Day with a fun-filled parade that winds its way through the downtown streets of our great City.

We are now accepting applications for the 2019 parade taking place on Saturday, November 9th starting at 10 a.m. in downtown Bowling Green.

Each group or individual who would like to participate in the Veteran’s Day Parade will need to complete an entry form by Friday, October 25th, 2019. The form can be found online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/veteransentry or by calling 270-393-3549.

Once the parade line-up has been determined, usually one week prior to the parade date, participants will either be notified by mail, email, or by phone as to what position they are and the required arrival time.

Staging for the parade will be held on College Street beginning at 6th Street and ending at the 31W By Pass/1st Street.

Stepping out and showing your support for our community’s past, present, and future veterans and their families is something everyone should be proud of.  We look forward to seeing everyone there!

The City of Bowling Green encourages all of our residents to get involved in this great yearly event that recognizes the Veterans of our community.

If you are making plans to attend the parade as a spectator, make sure to remember to get there early to reserve your seat. The parade route will start at 6th and College, travel past Circus Square & Fountain Square Parks, turn left onto 10th Street, turn left onto State Street and then end at 6th and State Street.

More information will follow on the parade!
