20th Annual Reno Veterans Day Parade Commemorates the End of World War I


The City of Reno Veterans Day Parade took place Sunday, November 11, 2018 to honor the service of our veterans and salute those serving in the United States military.

The theme for the 2018 Reno Veterans Day Parade was “The Great War,” honoring the first Reno citizen to perish in World War I: Private First Class Darrell Melville Dunkle. This year, 2018, marks the Centennial Commemoration of the end of WWI on November 11, 1918.

The grand marshal of the 2018 parade was Brigadier General Ondra Berry, commander of the Nevada Air Guard and former assistant police chief at the Reno Police Department.

There were more than 80 entries in this year’s parade, one of the highest participation marks in the event’s history. The Reno Veterans Day Parade has been an annual event since 1998.
