Honor the Idaho women and men who have served our great nation in the military at the 2017 Boise Veterans Day Parade. This year's parade will be held on the Saturday before Veteran’s Day, which falls on a drill weekend for the Idaho National Guard at Gowen Field and allows local military units to have a larger presence in the parade. There will be joint force military vehicles and aircraft for the whole family to enjoy. A special opening ceremony will begin at 9:15 a.m. on the Idaho State Capitol steps, with the parade to follow at 9:45 a.m. Starting at 10th and Jefferson, the route proceeds east on Jefferson to Fourth Street, turns south onto Bannock, and goes west to 11th Street.
