This year’s theme is “Showing Our County’s Veterans We Care.”
The parade will start on Market Street in Clinton and move toward Main Street, passing in front of the Anderson County Courthouse.
Immediately after the parade, there will be a ceremony celebrating veterans featuring a “mini-concert” by local favorites Russ and Becky Jeffers in the Ritz Theater.
This year’s grand marshal will be Leon Jaquet, director of Anderson County Veteran Services and the commander of the Clinton American Legion Post #172. Jaquet is a 24-year retiree of the U.S. Navy before moving to Clinton and being selected as the Veteran Service Office in 2007.
All veterans are invited to take part, and everyone is encouraged to come out and support our veterans, past, present, and future at the wonderful parade, a press release said.
The parade is being presented by Anderson County Veteran Services and Clinton American Legion Post #172, in partnership with the Sons of the Revolution—Anderson County Chapter and Anderson County Chamber of Commerce.
