There’s also a drive-thru parade that starts at 10:30 a.m. on Camp Wisdom Road near Lancaster Road in southern Dallas. A short program and flyover will follow at Patriots Crossing at 11:11 a.m. Veterans can get a boxed lunch provided by Wingfield’s Breakfast and Burgers.
Grand Prairie will host a virtual Veterans Day celebration with guest speakers and a presentation to honor veterans who have sacrificed time from their lives to protect the country.
Farmers Branch will host a live event with the Victory Belles, a trio from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, beginning at 10:30 a.m. outside The Branch Connection on Dennis Lane. The Rotary Club will serve hot dogs afterward.
The skyline of downtown Dallas will be lighted up in red, white, and blue Wednesday to honor America’s heroes.
