Hartford's Christmas Parade Takes Place On Veterans Day

The theme for this year's Christmas Parade in the city of Hartford is "A Salute to Christmas." It begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 11 in downtown Hartford.

90 entries are registered at the time of this story. It always includes a variety of area organizations, clubs and businesses with creative floats.

This great annual event takes place on Veterans Day. The Hartford Honor Guard will step off the parade, and any Veteran is invited to walk with them. Other Veterans will take part in the parade riding in floats and trucks.

The Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce has selected five proud Veterans that will serve as Hartford Christmas Parade Marshals, representing the five Branches of Service.

Hot and cold beverages will be served at Sawyer Park, in the city of Hartford after the parade for area Veterans.
