CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- The Clarksville-Montgomery County Veterans Day Parade will be Saturday, Nov. 7, with pre-parade ceremonies at 9 a.m. in front of the historic courthouse on Third Street in downtown Clarksville. 


The keynote speaker is U.S. Army retired Maj. Gen. Walt Lord, now a vice president at FileBank Inc. This year’s Veterans Day Parade theme is “Salute to Veterans in Healthcare.”

 

Participants and spectators who are unable to social distance are urged to wear face masks. The parade will be broadcast live on the Montgomery County Facebook page and on CDE Lightband’s Clarksville Community Network.


The parade will begin at 10 a.m. at the corner of N. Eighth and College Streets, next to the Sundquist Science Building at Austin Peay State University. The reviewing stand will be on the Third Street side of the courthouse. The parade will proceed from College left onto University Avenue, right onto Main Street, left onto Third Street, left onto Commerce Street, left onto University Avenue, right onto Franklin Street, left onto Eighth Street and back to the APSU parking area.
