Even though this holiday has succumbed to the magnetism of retail discounts, we remember and value the true spirit of today’s celebrations. So take a moment to say thank you to a veteran today and enjoy one of the many parades in the area.
In case you didn’t know:
1. Branson is known as “Veteran’s Capital of the Nation”
2. Branson hosts the largest celebration of Veteran’s Day in the country.
3. The parade is this morning at 11 AM and runs through Branson’s Historic Downtown.
If you can’t make it down to Branson, Springfield hosts a parade at 10 AM today in its downtown area as well.
Now, about those discounts I mentioned earlier. There are a number of restaurants who want to show their appreciation to veterans through some delicious deals, including Chili’s, Red Lobster, Outback, and Applebee’s.
A full list of participating restaurants can be found here.
