THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Many residents are gearing up for Thomasville’s Veterans Day Parade which is set for Friday, November 11, 2016.

After a number of years without a parade, the City of Thomasville is excited for its return.

“It’s going to be better than ever,” Thomasville’s Event Director Sarah Turner said.

Turner told WALB News 10 that this year’s parade has around 20-25 units that will be marching and driving down historic Broad Street.

“It’s been awhile since we’ve had this parade, but the community has just shown so much enthusiasm for this event that I think we’re going to have a great turnout,” Turner said.

The parade begins at 6:00 p.m. on North Broad Street and will travel down Broad Street towards Smith Avenue.

Police will begin blocking off Broad Street around 5:00 p.m. Parade goers are allowed to park along the parade route, but will not be able to access the street until the parade is over.

The parade is just one of the many events happening in the city this Friday. In addition to the procession, there is a Veterans Day Breakfast at the American Legion Post 31 at 7:30 a.m. There is also a ceremony set for 11:11 a.m. at the city’s courthouse on Broad Street.
