My grandfather (pictured above left) entered the military straight out of high school. He retired from his service in the 1960s and moved to Palm Springs with my grandmother. He didn’t live to see the Palm Springs Veterans Day Parade, but I’m sure he would have been proud.
This year, as in past years, many of the veterans marching in the parade will be proud gay men and lesbians. I’m guessing there aren’t a lot of other places in the country where you’ll find out and open LGBTQ veterans marching in Veterans Day Parades. Just another reason for gay vets to call Palm Springs home.
The 18th Annual Palm Springs Veterans Day Parade will be held on Tuesday, November 11 at 3:30 p.m in downtown Palm Springs.
The parade starts at Ramon Road and Palm Canyon Drive and heads northbound on Palm Canyon Drive to Alejo Road. A patriotic concert and will be held following the parade, with a fireworks finale at approximately 5:00 p.m.
The parade and concert are free and the public is invited.
