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, kids young and old can get up close and personal with Veterans and local Marines at the free family fun event at the Jacksonville Commons. Tour the Lejeune Memorial Gardens where you can learn military history and honor the fallen. And, make sure to catch one of the "Firsts at Camp Lejeune" lectures for more military history. On Monday, the Onslow County DAV Chpt 16 will host its annual Veterans Day Ceremony, open to the public. Make plans now to spend the weekend in Jacksonville.
