Gadsden’s Veterans Day Parade Back On
Although it’s been two years since Gadsden has staged a Veterans Day parade, this year the Greater Gadsden Area Tourism and the Gadsden-Etowah Patriots Association have come together to put on a 2015 parade on November 4th at 2:00PM. Last year a parade was supposed to take place, but it was cancelled. Instead, local supporters demonstrated to commemorate the holiday. Greater Gadsden Area Tourism Executive Director Hugh Stump says now that the parade is on, and applications are being taken for those who would like to participate. The deadline is October 23rd. Applications can be downloaded from the Tourism website at greatergadsden.com or picked up at the Visitors Center at 90 Walnut Street in the Amphitheater Complex.
