Veterans Day will be celebrated nationally on Thursday, November 11, 2021. Veteran's Day, also called Armistice Day, is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans, who are people who have served in the United States Armed Forces.  Veteran's Day is a national holiday and is typically celebrated each year on November 11, unlike some national holidays that float to different days.


This Sunday, Apache Oklahoma looks forward to honoring Veterans in all branches of the military with a parade in downtown Apache.  They have several floats, the 77th Army Band, marching groups participating to honor those who have served.


Pre-Registration for the parade is encouraged but not mandatory.  The registrants will start lineup at 1 pm, at the old Apache High School.  There will be activities following the parade that will make it's way through Downtown Apache starting at 2 pm.

There is a traffic advisory for this parade, apparently, there will be a road closure that starts this weekend.  The road will be closed at the railroad tracks as you enter Apache.  Those looking to attend and view this Veteran's Day Parade will need to turn left just after the curve at the railroad tracks, and continue north and come into Apache from the north side.  Organizers have said that they will watch traffic and delay the start of the parade for a few minutes should the need arise to make sure that everyone is able to take part in the parade.

The lineup for the parade is still being updated, in fact, will continue to be updated right up until parade time. KLAW 101's Jeri Anderson will be on hand to announce the parade.
