Groups will begin forming at 4:15 p.m. A ceremony will follow the parade at the Courthouse on Market Square recognizing all veterans of American service.
As part of the tribute, Colonial Williamsburg offers special free admission passes to active duty military, guard and reservists, retirees, veterans and their dependents from Friday through Wednesday, Nov. 6-11. The Honoring Service to America pass includes admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and museums, including the Capitol, Governor’s Palace and Bassett Hall, the Williamsburg home of Foundation benefactor John D.
