The Lycoming County Veterans Parade rolled down Broad Street in Montoursville on Saturday, Nov. 9; a stream of military and emergency vehicles, fire trucks, marching bands, bagpipes, classic cars, organizations, kids, and flapping flags, all in honor of veterans who have served in the military, past and present.

The day was chilly--in the low 40s--and the wind battered the crowds along the road, but they gathered nonetheless to watch the eight divisions and approximatly 1,500 participants march past. 

Watch NorthcentralPa.com on Monday, November 11--Veterans Day--for full parade coverage with pictures.

The Lycoming County Veterans Parade committee reminds you, “Don’t forget to thank a veteran!”
