Armed Forces Day is this Saturday, May 19th, and Richmond will hold a Welcome Home Our Heroes parade at 10 a.m.
The parade will begin at Kensington and Boulevard and proceed down Boulevard to end at the Carillon in Byrd Park.
The parade will provide the Richmond community – and the commonwealth – an opportunity to support and thank our military veterans and their families for their honorable and dedicated service to our nation during the past decade.
Then from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., The Carillon grounds will host a Veterans Resource Village featuring service and outreach organizations, including state, federal and local agencies and employers, as well as food vendors, military displays, and live music.
