Join the City of Miami Beach for the return of the 13th annual Veterans Day parade and celebration. The event features veteran and military groups, marching bands and community organizations along iconic Ocean Drive beginning at Fifth Street.The start time of the event coincides with the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month originally intended to commemorate the armistice ending World War I. The holiday was later expanded to honor American veterans of all wars.

The largest parade of the day in South Florida takes route on Ocean Drive from Fifth to 14 streets. At noon, the festivities move to Lummus Park as the All Veteran Parachute Team takes to the skies over South Beach for a demonstration. The event continues with a family picnic in Lummus Park and a wreath-laying ceremony.

Parade participation has grown from approximately 50 people to more than 2,000 over the years – including students, organizations, businesses, military groups and public officials. The program includes the Miami Beach Police and Fire Department Honor Guards’ presentation of the colors; a recital of the Pledge of Allegiance, the national anthem and a moment of silence in honor of our First World War Armistice Day tradition. There will also be addresses by military officials from Southern Command and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. Other activities include MBPD Honor Guard’s 21-gun salute and a performance by a Taps bugler.
