What’s open and closed for Veterans Day

Here’s what’s open and what’s closed Monday for Veterans Day:

WENATCHEE — Local veterans will take to Wenatchee’s streets Monday to honor their service with a Veterans Day Parade.

Veterans who want to participate in the parade are asked to gather at the Wells Fargo Bank, 301 N. Chelan Ave., no later than 10:30 a.m. That’s when a preparade group of motorcyclists will leave the bank along the parade route.

The official parade begins at 10:45 a.m. Anyone who wants to be in the parade can join in, said Dan Heimbecker, past commander of Wenatchee American Legion Post 10 and organizer of the parade for the past several years.

Heimbecker said the Wenatchee High School Golden Apple Band will participate again this year. A local car club is also expected to participate.

The parade gets longer every year. Some people were still leaving the bank when the front of the parade returned last year,” Heimbecker said.

The parade route follows Chelan Avenue south to Memorial Park. A rifle salute will be fired at 11 a.m.

The parade will then turn left down Orondo Avenue, left on Mission Street and back to the bank parking lot.

A free barbecue lunch will be held for all veterans and their families after the parade at the Wenatchee Fire Department. For more information about the parade or to participate, call Heimbecker at 881-7955.
