Santa Rosa County and Milton will show their deep rooted patriotic pride on Nov. 11 with a full slate of activities in honor of Veteran’s Day.

Festivities in Santa Rosa County will get underway at 9:30 a.m. with the annual Veteran’s Day Parade.

The parade route will start at Milton High School and work its way down Stewart St. from there it will turn east on Berryhill Rd., and then South on Willing St. The parade will conclude at the Santa Rosa County Veteran’s Memorial Plaza.

In a fitting tribute to Veteran’s, the remainder of the day’s activities will be held at the plaza starting at 11 a.m. with a ceremony and the hanging of the wreaths at the Santa Rosa County Veteran’s Memorial Plaza.

During the ceremony the Veteran’s Day coloring contest winners will be announced and the keynote speaker will be Col. D. Wolfman Holzworth.

Following the ceremony there will be a Veteran’s Day cookout hosted by the Santa Rosa County 4-H.

On Saturday Nov. 15, The Santa Rosa County Fair Board will be working to assist veterans in Santa Rosa County with the Veteran’s 5K Run.

Registration is $25 per runner with a goodie bag and more after the race, which will end near the June Ates Arena.

The run will start at 3 p.m. and cover the former Red Brick Run course from near the Peter Prince Airport to the Santa Rosa County Fairgrounds.
