PHOTOS: Hundreds line downtown streets for Veterans Day parade


Hundreds of spectators on Thursday lined Virginia Street from Liberty to Fifth streets to celebrate the nation’s veterans and watch the city’s annual Veterans Day Parade. The parade was back to being in-person this year after being held virtually in 2020.

This year’s parade theme commemorated 100 years since the dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a memorial at Arlington National Cemetery.

This Is Reno photographer Ty O’Neil captured moments from the event in the gallery below.

Ty O’Neil is a lifelong student of anthropology with two degrees in the arts. He is far more at home in the tear gas filled streets of war torn countries than he is relaxing at home. He has found a place at This Is Reno as a photojournalist. He hopes to someday be a conflict photojournalist covering wars and natural disasters abroad.




Parades and observances highlight Veterans Day

Several Veterans Day activities are planned around the region, which include parades, an observance and lunches and dinners for those who served in the military.
