Veterans Day Parade rolling through downtown Biloxi Saturday

The annual Gulf Coast Veterans Parade will roll through Downtown Biloxi Saturday at 11 a.m.

The parade lineup will include military personnel from the Navy, Army, Air Force, Air National Guard, and Marine Corps.

Veterans who were in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Desert Shield will also be participating in the parade.

Local high school bands, JROTC troops, and Boy Scouts will be parading down the streets as well.

This year’s Grand Marshal is Dr. Inez Kelleher, an orthopedic surgeon and U.S. Air Force veteran. “It is a truly great honor to be asked to do that and to represent the veterans on our Coast and the United States for their service and sacrifice. In particular, the spotlight is on the veteran medics, veteran and active-duty medics, and the reason for that is because of the extreme support and sacrifices that they had to make this year and the last couple of years in support of the pandemic that we have been experiencing.”

The parade in Biloxi will start at 11 a.m. at the corner of Howard Avenue at Bellman Street and end at Lameuse Street and Highway 90.
