The East Valley Veterans Parade Association hosted its annual parade in Mesa in a new format Wednesday, Nov. 11.
There were to be 25 to 30 parade entries stationed along the parade route on Center Street and the spectators became the parade, according to a release.
Residents from throughout the Valley were encouraged to decorate their automobiles in patriotic themes to express their appreciation for lives of service as they drove through the parade route to view the parade entries.
The parade started at MLK Jr. Way and Center Street and headed south to First Street. Details on the parade route and participating entries are on the East Valley Veterans Parade website at evvp.org and its Facebook page @EastValleyVeteransParade.
