The City of Rio Rancho’s Veterans Day Parade takes place on Friday, Nov. 11 at 10 a.m.

The parade will travel from Country Club Drive east on Southern Boulevard, where it will conclude at Veterans Monument Park, which is near the intersection of Southern Boulevard and Pinetree Road.

While the parade is taking place, Southern Boulevard between Country Club Drive and Pinetree Road will be closed, and motorists will need to seek alternate routes.

Immediately following the parade, participants and spectators can take part in a special Veterans Day Ceremony starting at 11 a.m. at the Veterans Monument Park (adjacent to Esther Bone Memorial Library). The ceremony will feature several guest speakers.
