The City of Bellevue is proud to be the home of Nebraska's official Veteran's Day parade. This year, the 19th annual Defenders of Freedom Parade, will start down Mission Avenue on Saturday, November 10th starting at 10am. This year's Grand Marshal will be Retired Brig. General Paul Cohen who served our country for 35 years most of which was spent with the Nebraska Air National Guard!
The parade will begin at Jackson Street and Mission Avenue and head east before heading north on Franklin Street towards Washington Park. There are over 90 entries currently signed up and this parade traditionally showcases a number of veterans and active duty military groups and personnel as well as a strong showing from the Bellevue Public Schools and many businesses and community organizations.
Thanks to the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce for coordinating this great parade and a special thanks to the Bellevue Fire Department, the Bellevue Police Department, Offutt AFB, the City of Bellevue and Bellevue Public Schools for all your help putting on this event which honors our Veterans!
Mission Avenue will be closed from 8AM to Noon on Saturday, November 10th for the Parade. Detour routes will be posted.
