Springfield hosts 18th annual Veterans Day Parade
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - The 18th annual Lane County Veterans Day Parade took over the streets of Springfield on Sunday afternoon, where hundreds of veterans were escorted by local police down Mohawk Blvd.
The theme of this year's parade was honoring all who served.
The vision of the parade is to support the nation's veterans and their families with community awareness and education.
"I love seeing the veterans and all the different ages," said Dashawna Pellegrino, a veteran. "The young kids, the cub scouts and it's just an awesome thing to be a part of it and see it."
Mohawk Blvd. was closed down briefly for the parade, but is now open to normal traffic.
