The City of Lufkin, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1836, and the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau will host a Pineywoods Veterans Celebration on Nov. 5, with a parade at 10 a.m. starting at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center and ending at Louis Bronaugh Park, where a live music performance will take place along with guest speakers and free food for veterans. The parade route includes South First Street and East Burke Avenue. We want our community to know that we do support our veterans, Tara Watson-Watkins, executive director of the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau said "We've got to come together, with so much happening in our country, to support and show thanks to our local veterans who have fought for our freedoms." For more information about the parade, contact Watson-Watkins at 633-0349. For those who wish to enter cars and floats, themes should not be about the business they represent, but representative of our veterans.
