Veterans Day will be observed Monday downtown. Veterans Day kicks off with a Walking Procession starting at 10:00am. Visitors are invited to line the Washington Avenue Mall just before 10:00am to watch the procession of veterans pass by from Memorial Park up Washington Avenue to William Street and Barton Street.

A new Veterans Resource Fair will open in Hurkamp Park at 12:00pm until 2:00pm, after the conclusion of the ceremony at the Fredericksburg Area War Memorial.
