If you like aircrafts, parades, and an airshow, you’ll love the Petaluma Veteran’s Day Parade. It’s held in beautiful downtown Petaluma. Vintage war birds and sleek air racers fly-in to take part in what has been called the “largest Veterans Day Parade north of the Golden Gate.” The Petaluma Veterans Day Parade features war planes that fly in formation over Historic Downtown Petaluma. The parade winds its way north from the starting point at Walnut Park at “D” Street and finishes back at Walnut Park.
The parade begins at 1:00 but you are welcome to head out early as their will be music playing in the gazebo starting at noon. After the parade, enjoy a Veterans Day Program with prayer, Pledge of Allegiance and more.
