Join us as we honor and pay respect to all Veterans with a parade on November 09, 2013 at 10:00 am in downtown Springfield Missouri. The parade route is about 1 and 1/2 miles long and the parade will last about an hour. Southwest Missouri is the Heart of the Ozarks and we are continuing our decades old tradition of honoring our Veterans. We are actively seeking high school bands, clubs, groups, companies, and organizations to enter and take part in our parade. Read More...
