DSC_0012The first annual Imperial County Veterans Day Parade was held in Holtville on Tuesday November 11th honoring those that have served our country and their efforts in keeping our freedom.
The parade started at 10:00 a.m. with the Reach Emergency Medical Helicopter doing a flyby down Holtville 5th Street, the main street in Holtville, followed by the El Centro Naval Air Base Color Guard displaying the flags of our State and Nation.
There were around 40 entries for the first annual event which included several floats carrying local Veterans that have served in foreign wars dating all the way back to World War II and those that are currently serving along with bands, car clubs, motorcycle clubs, horses and lots of people having a good time.
The parade which lasted just over an hour was enjoyed by well over 1000 people that came out to show their respect to our Veterans.
After the parade there were ceremonies in the gazebo at Holt Park along with the kickoff of the Holtville Farmers Marked that was organized by the Holtville Chamber of Commerce.
The Farmers Marked brought local vendors and food providers that were there with their patriotic items and a variety of different kinds of food to help satisfy everyone’s appetite.
There was entertainment provided by Magin Strahm’s Band.
For the very first Veterans Day Parade the turnout was fantastic and looking forward it will only get bigger and better giving the opportunity for Holtville to be the welcoming host that it always is.
The parade was hosted by the American Legion and Auxiliary Bradley Keefer Post 138, the City of Holtville. The Farmers Market was hosted by the Holtville Chamber of Commerce.
