CITY OF RENO NEWS RELEASE

The city of Reno is proud to be holding a parade in honor of our veterans tomorrow. The entire community is invited to attend.

The parade will begin at 11:11 a.m. on South Virginia Street at Court Street and will travel northbound to 5th Street. The theme of the parade is “Women in the Military.”

Prior to the parade, the National Anthem will be sung, Taps performed, and dignitaries will place a wreath in the Truckee River. The Grand Marshal will be Margaret (Peggy) Fish, a World War II Marine veteran. The Second Grand Marshal will be Thomas Okumura, a World War II Army veteran.

A National Roll Call consisting of reading the names of more than 6,000 fallen solders from the last 10 years will also occur.

The names will be read on the City Plaza (located on the southeast corner of First Street and Virginia Street) beginning at 7 a.m. Every 15 minutes, 225 names will be read with a pause at 11 a.m. for a national moment of silence. The reading of the names will continue once the parade is finished.
