The 11th Annual Long Beach Veterans Day Parade, held last Saturday, took place along Atlantic Avenue, honoring all soldiers who served their country. Marching bands, drill teams, equestrians and military vehicles entertained the crowd as they kicked off the eventful Saturday morning. Vets were honored at a noontime ceremony that followed the parade.
Parade guests also had the opportunity to get some holiday shopping done with a craft and vendor’s fair, held at Long Beach’s Houghton Park.
