Bend’s Annual Veterans Day Parade is one of the largest Veterans Day parades in Oregon with more than 120 organizations participating and thousands of spectators lining the streets of downtown Bend. Our 2017 Grand Marshal is Leon Devereaux, Jr. U.S. Navy, WWII fighter pilot, awarded the Air Medal with 3 Gold Stars.
