Each year, the Mayor’s Advisory Council hosts a number of events to honor our nation’s veterans. The City of Orlando’s Veterans Day Parade is our signature event and includes 100 units consisting of local veterans’ organizations, members of the active military, bands, floats and more all coming together to pay tribute to those who have fought for our freedoms. The 2016 Veterans Day Parade is scheduled for Saturday, November 12.
We also host the annual POW-MIA Recognition Ceremony and pledge to never forget our prisoners of war or those still missing in action. Each year we pay tribute to them with a ceremony in the rotunda of City Hall. Information on the 2016 POW-MIA Recognition Ceremony will be added a later date.
