Denver's Veterans Day Parade

The parade along Colfax Avenue and around Civic Center park begins at 10 a.m. and will feature segments that represent the major conflicts in US military history, including the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, and more recent conflicts.

Thousands of local veterans will be participating in Denver's Veterans Day Parade on Sunday morning.

The first parade was held in 2000 and saw only a small handful of participants.

One veteran at the event said he enjoys going to the parade because it makes him proud be a veteran. The awards recognize individuals who devote time and energy to improving the lives of Washington's veterans. "We have a lot of veterans in our group and a lot of other groups that have a lot of veterans within their group".

Just prior to the parade, there will be a Remembrance Ceremony at the Colorado Veteran Monument at Civic Center Park.
