The celebration, always held on a Saturday, will be June 15, 2013, and will kick off with a parade at 10 a.m. The parade begins at the Palmyra High School parking lot & goes down Main Strett past the court house. Floats, marching units, vintage cars and trucks, local clubs and organizations, local royalty from pageants, and more will be marching with veterans in the parade. All local veterans are welcome to participate.

Following the parade there will be a Flag Raising Ceremony on the courthouse lawn by the VFW. Food booths will be set up by the Palmyra Jaycees on the side of the courthouse, and there will be a tractor exhibit by the Northriver Old Iron Club.
