Warsaw Holds Annual Veterans Day Parade (PHOTO GALLERY)

The Town of Warsaw held its 100th consecutive Veterans Day Parade on Saturday. It is the oldest consecutive Veterans Day Parade in America. The event kicked off early Saturday morning with a memorial service and wreath-laying at 10:00 a.m. followed by the parade at 11 a.m. on Center Street. With this being the 100th consecutive year of the parade, four F-15 Strike Eagles from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro flew over the awestruck crowd.  A team of three skydivers parachuted in over the crowd as the parade kicked off.  There were about 140 entries in the parade. At noon a second flyover was performed by the North Carolina Forestry Service coming in from the north heading south over Center Street. The town officials encouraged the people to wear their face masks and maintain social distancing when possible.  There were also sanitizing stations set up throughout the parade route.
