Veterans on Parade Set for September 10 in Marion

MARION – The annual Veterans on Parade is set for Saturday, Sept. 10 along Main Street in Marion.

Ed Davis, a veteran himself and president of the Veterans on Parade organization, says this is the 18th year for the event that honors our veterans and first responders.

Davis says this year there will be two honorary grand marshals.

Following the parade there will be a memorial ceremony at the Williamson County Fairgrounds honoring first responders and those fallen heroes who have paid the ultimate price.
