Veterans Day 2020 In The Yakima Valley
Veterans Day 2020 is Wednesday and you have a number of ways to participate or show your appreciation. The first event will be held at 9:00 a.m. in Toppenish when a flag raising is held by the Yakama Warriors Association headquarters at 480 Buster Road in Toppenish.
Then at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday a Blue Star monument will be dedicated at Yakima's Tahoma Cemetary to honor WW II veterans. You're asked to enter the South 24th Avenue entrance if you plan to attend.
Because of the current pandemic the annual Veterans Day parade along Yakima Avenue has been cancelled but the Marine Corps League of Yakima plans a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial wall located at Yakima's Sarge Hubbard Park. The ceremony starts at 1:00 p.m.
