Fourth of July Veterans Parade

July 4 @ 5:00 pm

The 2018 Fourth of July Veterans Parade in Lawrenceburg will be a 45th Anniversary tribute to Vietnam War veterans as the country observes the withdrawal of the last U.S combat troops in March of 1973.

The parade will step off at 5 p.m. and veterans of the Vietnam War, and all other veterans throughout Kentucky, are invited to come to Lawrenceburg and take part in the parade and a ceremony on the city Green immediately afterward.

There will be live music starting at 6 p.m. from R&R, Jarrod Stratton, Edenspeak and a fireworks show will wrap up the night.

There will also be a Traveling Kentucky Vietnam Wall to be displayed inside the Lawrenceburg Senior Center, adjacent to the Green, for people to come and visit on the Fourth of July. The wall lists the names of the 1,105 Kentuckians who were killed in action during the Vietnam War, taken prisoner or are still missing.

Vietnam veterans who would like to be in the parade are asked to be at the American Legion Auxiliary, 725 West Broadway Street, at 3:30 p.m., where you’ll be served food. Line up for the parade starts at 4 p.m. and the parade begins at 5 p.m. Activities on the Green begin at 6 p.m.
