Join us as we honor and say "THANK YOU" to our TRUE AMERICAN HEROES.
Calling all Veterans and Patriots! November 11th is Veteran’s Day and for the seventh year, we will be pulling the FCTP Wharf through the streets of downtown Jacksonville. Come join us as we honor our Veterans. You are welcome to walk with us or ride on the wharf. At the end, we will continue our tradition of placing a wreath at the Veterans Wall.
- this is one event that we would never want to miss and neither will you.
CALLING ALL VETERANS AND FAMILIES
If you would like to help decorate the float aka WHARF then join us on the east side of Everbank Stadium parking area. We will be in Row F at 9:30am. All hands are welcome and we really really do need your help. We need to have the wharf decorated by 10:30 and the parade begins at 11:01AM.
If you are a veteran and would like to ride on the float aka WHARF then join us on the east side of Everbank at our float location
If you are a veteran lover or just a parade lover and would like to walk (if needed ride) the parade route then join us at Everbank float location as well.
We usually park in the area around the Prime Osborn and take the trolley to Everbank Field.. Trolley's will be available at the end of the parade to return you to the Prime Osborn area.
If you wish to help decorating the float then please join us.. Even this part of the event is fun. There is a lot of teamwork and laughter as we work together. Not to mention the chatter and new friends made with other great patriots as they prepare their floats for the grand trip to honor our veterans.
This is a very very special event and I guarantee you will have a heartwarming day. There is no greater joy than being able to shake the hands of our veterans or giving them a thumbs up from atop the float.
At the end of the parade we will join together at the Veterans Memorial Wall where again this year we will give our thanks to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom as we set a beautiful wreath at the wall in their honor.
