Tribute to Heroes Parade 2022 on Main Street

Veterans Parade

Tribute to Heroes Parade 2022 on Main Street
Lakewood Ranch Main Street

More than 75 organizations will parade down Main Street at Lakewood Ranch to honor veterans, fallen soldiers, and active-duty military personnel. The parade is Sunday, May 22, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The VFW will be the first organization marching in the parade with its banner out front and veterans walking on foot behind it. Then the VFW will have about 11 members driving in Corvettes with the veterans’ names on a sign on the windshield to receive recognition. That is just the start of what promises to be a great family event honoring veterans in all arms of the military. We hope to see everyone out there for bands, veterans, and many exciting surprises down the parade route.
