Veteran’s Day in Long Beach

AFM1Veteran’s Day is a special day that recognizes the men and women that have served our country across multiple battles, conflicts, and wars, helping to preserve our freedom and rights as a country and as citizens. Each year, November 11th is designated as Veteran’s Day.

 

AFM2This year, Long Beach decided to host its annual Veteran’s Day parade a bit early on Saturday, November 5th at 10am. The annual parade was started in 1996 by former Long Beach Councilman Jerry Shultz who wanted the city to have a patriotic event.

 

The event draws more than 15,000 people and reminds the community about the importance veterans play in our country. We need to honor and take care of the people who have taken care of us.

 

The parade kicks off at Atlantic and Harding at 10am and proceeds south on Atlantic to 56th Street and then returns north on Atlantic back to Harding. Come out and support our vets!

 

We also have made numerous patriotic flower arrangements available that you can order from our Long Beach flower shop by visiting or calling or ordering through our website.AFM4

 

From all of us at Allen’s Flower Market, we would like to thank our local Long Beach vets and those across our great country who so bravely fought on our behalf!
