Twelfth annual Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade set for Nov. 5


ANTHEM – On Saturday, Nov. 5, the 12th annual Daisy Mountain Veterans Parade will once again make its way through Anthem, starting at 10 a.m. This parade is known statewide and is a community tradition.

The parade begins on Gavilan Peak Parkway and travels north to the Anthem Community Center. This parade is free and open to the public, and the community is invited to attend and cheer on the parade participants.

This year’s parade will focus especially on Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm Veterans.

“On the 25th anniversary of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, we honor the services and sacrifices of Gulf War veterans. Please join us at this year’s parade,” said Frankie Ruiz, parade co-chair, in a Daisy Mountain Veterans news release.

During parade preparations, the full parade, and the parade breakdown, northbound Gavilan Peak Parkway and eastbound Anthem Way, between Gavilan Peak Parkway and Freedom Way, will be closed. Traffic will be rerouted to southbound Gavilan Peak Parkway and westbound Anthem Way, which will be split to allow two-way traffic during the road closures.
