Downtown Decked Out for Annual Veterans Day Parade

Main Street is already lined with American flags, and businesses are rolling out the welcome mat for local veterans.

Nashua's annual Veterans Day parade will start at Holman Stadium at approximately 10:30 a.m. Friday, 11/11/11, and  head toward downtown. Local Veterans groups, high school bands, and other community organizations are included in the procession.
