Honor the millions of veterans at Albany's 62nd Annual Veteran's Day Parade. The parade kicks off at the corner of Central Avenue and Ontario Street at 11am.

The parade marches down Central Avenue, continuing on to Washington Avenue. The reviewing stand is on the steps of the Education Building, across from the Capitol. The parade finishes at the corner of Rockenstyre Way (old Hawk Street). The Grand Marshall typically arrives at the Education Building at about 11:30am.
