The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month

Marking Armistice Day, now Veterans Day, the parade will form tomorrow on the south end of the bridge and march up Congress to the Capitol for ceremonies of commemoration at 11 am. The parade is scheduled to begin at 9 am. If there are military bands available, there will be lots of traditional Sousa marches. Some years the schools send bands; others, not, although Del Valle usually makes an appearance no matter who else does. Congress Avenue was designed for parades and processions, always free and usually, like this one, family-friendly events.
