If you’re at the Dominion Christmas Parade on Saturday morning, be ready to snap a picture of the Chick-fil-A float – show it at any area Chick-fil-A on Monday, December 8, for a free chicken sandwich!
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.
For more information, visit americaforvets.org or the event’s Facebook group, Richmond Welcomes Home the Heroes. Or call the Richmond Council Navy League at (804) 355-7557.
The annual Bon Air Victorian Day and Parade is this Saturday, May 12. The parade will start from the parking lot of Bon Air Baptist Church (2531 Buford Rd) at 1pm and proceed down Buford Road. This year’s Grand Marshall is WRVA personality Jimmy Barrett.
The Victorian Day event will run from 11am to 4pm at Bon Air Christian Church (2071 Buford Rd), with children’s games, performers, musical entertainment, craft booths, a bake sale, food concessions and an historical display.
We attended the parade for the first time last year and had a fun time. It was a relaxed pace and not too crowded. I noticed a number of kids showed up with grocery bags – and found out those were for stuffing with all the candy that was thrown!
