veterans_dayVeteran's Day is a time to show appreciation for those who have served and Boston will celebrate with two Veteran's Day parades in Downton Boston

There will be a Veteran's Day Parade followed up by the Veterans for Peace Parade. 

The Veteran's Day parade will be held on Tuesday, November 11th near Boylston and Tremont Street. 

"Boston's first Veteran's Day Parade kicks off at 1pm on at the corner of Boylston and Tremont Streets.  The second Veterans Day Parade, known as the Veterans for Peace Parade, follows right behind it to honor and celebrate the original intention for Armistice Day - a Day of Peace. 

Both parades march around Boston Common along Boylston and Tremont Streets, and on to City Hall Plaza and the front of Faneuil Hall next to the statue of American Revolution patriot Samuel Adams, where you can hear a variety of speeches, anti-war poetry readings, and music."

In honor of Veterans Day on Sunday, November 11, all Veterans will receive free admission at Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo. There is no way to truly thank the people who have protected this country, but spending time with them and showing them our uttermost appreciation is a good start! "Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo are also pleased to partner with Mahoney’s Garden Center for Trees for Troops! Mahoney’s will be setting up a live Christmas tree display with information on how to get involved with Trees for Troops from Veterans Day through December 2 at Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo." Today is also the first day of Trees for Troops. If you are interested in donating a tree, call 781-721-4691 These trees are sent to the armed forces and their families at over 60 military bases. Great Cause. And for all of you Veterans out there- THANK YOU!
