Locally, there are several ceremonies planned for Veterans Day; the most famous being the annual Veterans Day Parade:
This year’s parade will honor our “Living Legacies” as Bend commemorates the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII and the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.
Starting at 11:00, the parade route (see map >>) is as follows: NW Harmon – Newport Avenue – South on Wall Street – Riverside Drive
Additional Veterans Day area events, per Bend Bulletin:
Along with the parades, ceremonies and assemblies, veterans on Veterans Day are treated to waived fees for visits to public lands and free or discounted meals at many restaurants, including Pine Tavern Restaurant & Barin Bend. Reservations are recommended at the Pine Tavern. Military.com, a news and information website focused on the U.S. military, has a list of what national chain restaurants, such as Applebee’s and IHOP, offer veterans for the holiday.
This time of year, most public lands agencies in Central Oregon, including the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, already do not charge day-use fees for visits. This also includes Crater Lake National Park.
Oregon State Parks has a program in which it waives tent or RV camping fees, as well as day-use fees, for veterans with a service-related disability, said Chris Havel, state parks associate director. Vets register for the program, which runs year-round.
