Fort Wayne Honors Those that Have Served with Veteran's Day Events
Posted on November 07, 2013 at 8:00:31 am by Katie R.
Fort Wayne Komets are offering FREE admission as part of the Veteran's Day weekend celebrations. By showing their service ID at the Coliseum ticket office, veterans will be offered a free ticket to any open seat in the house. All active and retired military personnel will be recognized, and the Komets ask that all veterans, and other military members, wear their uniform or armed forces hat to the game. On Saturday (November 9), the annual Veteran's Day Parade will take place to honor those who have served our country. The parade will start promptly at 11:00am at Parnell Avenue and State Street and will go along a 1 mile stretch of Parnell Avenue. The Veteran's Day Parade will conclude at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum with several different, and official, ceremonies to commemorate Veteran's Day. The public is welcome, and encouraged, to line up along the parade route, and join in on the ceremonies afterwards. There are also a number of activities being held for veterans on Veteran's Day. The Parks and Recreation Department will put on two different events to honor those who have served our country. The first will be a FREE breakfast for veterans. This will take place at the Community Center on Main Street. Breakfast will be served at 8:30. This breakfast is open to all veterans. To make a reservation, Veterans should call 427-6460 to reserve their place. There will be entertainment as well by the American Legion Band and the Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana. Another free event the Parks Department is hosting is free golf for veterans. Even though the official closing date for all park golf courses is Sunday, November 10, courses will stay open one extra days to celebrate veterans. Shoaff, McMillen and Foster Park Golf Courses will remain open one extra day this year, in order to allow veterans to play golf for free. Those currently active in the military may also play for free on this day! Please show your military ID when you arrive to play. Reservations are reccomended. Reserve your tee time by calling your favorite golf course listed below, or reserve a time on the Fort Wayne Parks website.
