[ARCHIVED] Homestead Veteran’s Day Parade

Hundreds of people attended the 2012 Homestead Veteran’s Day Parade sponsored by the VFW 4127. The parade took place Saturday, November 10th at 12:00 noon in Downtown Homestead and its route started on Flagler and Krome Avenue, continued North on Krome until Campbell Drive and East on Campbell Drive until Flagler Avenue. The parade, which honors the memory of the men and women who have fought to defend our nation and liberty, is the oldest, and usually, the largest Veteran’s Day celebration in Miami-Dade County.

Strolling directly behind Mayor Steven C. Bateman and members of the Homestead City Council was the Homestead Centennial float. The beautiful float, which commemorated the Homestead Centennial, was designed to resemble the first railroad stop in Homestead, where Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway connected Homestead to the rest of the country. The float was designed by the Centennial Steering Committee and constructed by Florida Power & Light, Turkey Point, and The Land Utilization Team, under the direction of Bob Bertelson. Members of the Centennial Steering Committee rode on top of the float giving out candy and Centennial memorabilia to the crowd. The Centennial float was unveiled at this Veteran’s Day Parade. The float will also be featured in January 2013 in the Martin Luther King, Jr. parade on January 19th and The Rodeo Parade on January 26th.
