Boise Veterans Day Parade Rolls Through Downtown Saturday
This year's Veterans Day Parade is a salute to women in uniform.
The Boise Veterans Day Parade will roll through the streets of Downtown Boise on Saturday, November 5th at 9:30 a.m. Groups from Idaho universities, high schools, junior highs, you and civic organizations from all over the Treasure Valley will theme their floats in line with this year's parade vision of "a salute to women in uniform."
