27th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Parade

March 12 @ 10:45 am

Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum is celebrating the 26th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Parade starting at 10:45 am ET in Carrabelle, FL. This parade is planned especially to honor our country’s remaining WWII veterans as well as recognize and salute all veterans from WWII to the present. All veterans, their families, and friends as well as the general public are asked to come to Carrabelle to join the celebration of our military veterans. The museum needs the community’s support and participation to make the celebration and particularly the parade more special for our veterans than ever.
The Camp Gordon Johnston Parade pays tribute to all veterans of all branches of service.  This community parade typically features vintage museum vehicles like the WWII DUKW, Willis Jeep, and German Lieferwagen. In additional entries usually include other military vehicles, motorcycles, JROTC units, color guards, veteran organizations, and auxiliary units, and of course, many civic and community floats, decorated golf carts, gorgeous classic cars, Shriners, and beauty queens of all ages. The parade will wind through downtown Carrabelle along US Hwy 98.
Camp Gordon Johnston Museum invites everyone to participate in the 27th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Parade. Participants do not need any military affiliation to participate, just an appreciation for veterans and the military. Individuals, community organizations, and businesses are all welcome to participate with a float, vehicle, or as walkers. Participants show their support for our veterans and military service members by displaying red, white, and blue colors. There is no cost to participate in the parade.
