Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance is delighted to be bringing back an in-person celebration of those, past and present, who have made our nation’s freedom possible with the return of the Veterans Parade on Sunday, November 6 from 2 – 3 PM. We are looking forward to once again gathering with friends and neighbors to celebrate and honor our local veterans during this much-anticipated return.
