Posted: Updated:

TUCSON (KVOA) -- Tucsonans will honor and thank those who have heroically served our country, with the 98th annual Veterans Day Parade on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. The theme this year is "For the Hearts of Veterans."

This year's Grand Marshal is Adolfo "Harpo" Celaya, one of the survivors of the USS Indianapolis.  Harpo survived for five days holding onto a raft after the USS Indianapolis was sunk by a Japanese submarine just after midnight on July 30, 1945.    

Parade entrants will be judged and awarded trophies in the following categories: Senior Color Guard, Junior Color Guard, Senior Marching Unit, Junior Marching Unit, Float (truck and trailer), Decorated Automobiles, Musical Group, Veteran's Organization, Military Unit and Motorcycle Group.

There will be street closures and detours as needed.

Parking will be available at the City/State garage located at 498 W. Congress Street.
