Veterans Parade

2024 Los Banos Veterans Parade

Saturday, November 2, 2024

11:00 am

Salute to the Coast Guard

In 2014, the Los Banos American Legion Post 166 and the VFW Post 2487 joined together to provide a Veterans Parade.  As Los Banos is a small town, it was decided to hold the parade the weekend before Veterans Day in an effort to not compete with the festivities of the larger neighboring towns.

The primary purpose of our Veterans Parade is to honor all military veterans and their families.  Additionally, it is to educate and inspire community awareness while paying tribute to the service and sacrifices all veterans have endured in the pursuit of freedoms.  While all veterans are honored, each year the committee selects a “theme” for the parade.  Click here for the parade entry form.

The Los Banos Veterans Parade Committee is formed by a group of volunteers, both veterans and non-veterans, and welcomes new committee members.  If you would like more information about the various ways you can be involved, be sure to visit our parade volunteer page.
