Las Vegas Veterans Go Big in Downtown

For 23 straight years, downtown Las Vegas has played host to an annual parade saluting America’s Veterans. It’s evolved into one of the largest of its kind, in fact it’s the largest and biggest west of the Mississippi. And that’s something vets and active duty service members as well as local residents can be proud of.

The parade included a color guard, active and reserve components of all military branches, marching bands, the 300th Army Band, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, members of ROTC programs, a Wells Fargo stagecoach, horses and commercial entries. Ten thousand mini American flags were given out to people to wave during the parade.

What’s more, a contingent of over 50 Cox employees represented the company including family members. The group marched together with many helping carry a huge American flag in tribute to those who have selflessly served and are currently serving our country.┬áCox Communications, Las Vegas will produce and provide multiple broadcast opportunities for the annual Las Vegas Veterans Day Parade on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Cox has been producing the local Veterans Day Parade and rebroadcasting it on its local origination television station, now called YurView Las Vegas, since 2004. The parade broadcast hosts are local media personalities Casey Smith and Bryan Chan.
