The 18th annual West Richland Veteran’s Day Parade is coming up on Saturday, November 11, 2017. It’ll begin at its traditional 9:30 am start time.
The parade will begin at the intersection of Grosscup Road and Van Giesen and travel along Van Giesen eastbound until the end at 38th Avenue. Bleachers will be set up at the main viewing area in Flat Top Park, and veterans’ supporters from all over the region will be standing along the parade route to express their appreciation for those who served and are currently serving our country.
This year’s Grand Marshal is Benton County Fire District #4.
To accommodate the parade, Van Giesen Street will be closed in a couple spots on November 11th. From 7 am to 11 am, the section from 62nd Avenue to Grosscup will be closed. And from 9:30 am to about 11 am, it’ll be closed between 38th Avenue and Grosscup.
