Once at Hillcrest Park, a ceremony will be held at 11am. The ceremony will include placement of wreaths, patriotic solos by Kristen Romero, a gun salute by the Fullerton Police Department, and the playing of “Taps.”

All veterans are welcome to join in the parade , which will also feature JROTC units from Fullerton area high schools and the Troy High School Marching Band. The Troy High School Navy JROTC will cary flags representing all 50 U.S. states.

Parade participants are asked to arrive at the downtown plaza no earlier than 10am. To march in the parade, veterans must be able to march in regular cadence for approximately three-quarters of a mile. No children or pets can accompany marchers as the parade is next to a live traffic lane.
