COLUMBUS, N.C. (WSPA) – There was a Veteran’s Day parade in downtown Columbus today.
The parade was delayed so that more of the community could participate.
The parade started at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
There were about 30 units, including veteran organizations, auxiliaries, scout troops, police, and fire departments.
The parade was followed by a veterans memorial ceremony in Veterans Park.
Children at the parade made flag postcards and gave them to veterans.
Fire Departments usually play a big role in the parade, but because of the wildfires, not as many could participate.
