Veterans Tribute Weekend

Friday, November 8, 2019

Celebrate Veterans Day in a city that honors Military Heroes each and every day! This year, we're working with WRNS 95.1 and BOB 93.3 for a Friday night kickoff concert featuring Trial by Fire, Tribute to Journey. Doors will open at 8PM; concert at 9PM. General admission is $10 with proceeds going to a Veteran-focused charity. Saturday morning, salute our Nation's Heroes and their supporters during the 24th Annual Veterans Day Parade that marches down Western Boulevard starting at 10AM. After the parade, tour the Lejeune Memorial Gardens where you can learn military history and honor the fallen. Kids young and old can get up close and personal with Veterans and local Marines at the "Touch-A-Truck" event at Jacksonville Commons, starting at 1PM. On Monday, the Onslow County Disabled American Veterans Chapter 16 will host its annual Veterans Day Ceremony at 300 Sherwood Rd. A reception will follow. Make plans now to spend the weekend in Jacksonville.
