The City of Sacramento’s 8th annual Veterans Day parade will take place this Sunday, Nov. 11, with a special salute to Women in the Military — past, present, and future.
The program will begin at 10 a.m. on the main stage at 7th Street and Capitol Mall with the parade following at 11 a.m. at 9th Street and Capitol Mall. The parade will head west to 3rd Street and Capitol Mall. There will also be a Women’s Resource Fair at 6th Street and Capitol beginning at 9 a.m.
“We invite residents to celebrate and honor the men and women who have served our country and those who continue to serve, said Kriztina Palone Neighborhood Services Manager. “We are especially excited to give a special recognition to remarkable women in the military by highlighting the vast achievements and contributions our women and veterans make every day.”
As part of the celebration honoring women in the military, a photo exhibit is currently on display in the lobby at Sacramento City Hall through Nov. 14.
The photo exhibit, created by the Sacramento Chapter of the Women Veterans Alliance and James R. Morrison Photography, depicts inspiring portraits of Northern California women veterans.
The exhibit, titled “Vanquishing the Invisible,” is a series of portraits and stories of former soldiers who answer the question: “What does a women veteran look like?”
