Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum is celebrating the 29th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Day Veterans Parade on Saturday, March 9, 2024 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 present. All veterans, their family 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 this celebration more special than ever for our veterans.
The Camp Gordon Johnston Parade pays tribute to all veterans of all branches of service. This community parade will feature vintage museum vehicles like the WWII DUKW, Willis Jeep, and German Lieferwagen as well as restored military vehicles from the Military Vehicle Preservation Association and Florida Military Vehicle Heritage Group. In addition, the parade will be joined by several veteran organizations, plus veteran motorcycle groups, Shriners clubs, many businesses and community organizations. Military and police vehicles, decorated golf carts, gorgeous classic cars, patriotic walkers, and even some patriotic pets will wind through downtown Carrabelle along US Hwy 98.
Camp Gordon Johnston Museum invites everyone to participate in the parade and there is no cost to be in the parade. Participants do not need any military affiliation to participate, just an appreciation for veterans and the military. For best placement, sign up at our website by March 4, 2024. Participants who do not register are still encouraged to join.
