New York City has always been a patriotic town, especially on Veteran’s Day. The annual Carroll Park Veteran’s Day Parade, hosted by the Court Street Merchant’s Association, begins at 11 a.m. with a laying of a wreath at the War Memorial.
The big parade happens in Manhattan, and also starts at 11 a.m., ending around 2.p.m. The parade, with floats, marching bands, and 27 active military units as well as Medal of Honor recipients, begins at Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street, and travels north to 56th Street.
The Manhattan affair will include marching high school bands from around the nation.
There’s also going to be a Veteran’s Day concert and live music at Occupy Wall Street, which surely will do more to enrage the neighbors down there, who have been complaining loudly about the drum circle.
