The City of Marietta and the Kiwanis Club of Marietta invite the public to honor our community’s veterans with a parade and ceremony on the Marietta Square, Saturday, November 11, 2017.
The 13th Annual Veterans Day Parade will meet at Roswell Street Baptist Church at 0915. RSBC is located at 774 Roswell Street in Marietta, Georgia 30060. Patriot Guard Riders will assist in lining up in parade order. The Parade will begin promptly at 1045. The Parade route will go straight west down Roswell Street to the Marietta Square, turn right on West Park Square, turn right on North Park Square, then proceed straight to what becomes Lawrence Street. We encourage people to come to the Marietta Square to hear our Grand Marshal and participate in the Veterans Day Ceremony.
