Nebraska’s Official Veterans Parade and Military Expo Postponed Until Saturday, Nov. 12
Due to Expected Inclement Weather, Both Events Are Postponed by One Week
Due to expected inclement weather, Nebraska's Official Veterans Day Parade sponsored annually by the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce & Community, and the military expo hosted by Bellevue University following the parade, have been postponed.
Both the parade and the expo will now be held on Saturday, Nov. 12. Nebraska’s Official Veterans Parade will start at 10 a.m. on Mission Avenue in downtown Bellevue. The Military Expo will run from noon to 3 p.m., after the parade concludes.
The expo, featuring more than 20 veteran-facing organizations and resources, is free to attend and open to the public. It will be held at the John B. Muller Administrative Services Building on the Bellevue University campus at 812 Bruin Blvd., Bellevue, Nebraska 68005. Refreshments from local food trucks will be available for purchase.
Expo attendees can visit with organization contacts and learn how the organizations support the veteran community and individual veterans.
Expo organizer Matt Ritter said the new expo is an opportunity for the community to come together and expand on the Chamber’s Annual Veterans Parade celebration with an event that supports the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country.
“There are so many incredible resources for veterans here in Bellevue and Sarpy County. Working together with the Bellevue Chamber, we hope to let local residents and community members know where they can go to get veteran-focused support and resources.”
Organizations interested in exhibiting at the expo can register online. There is no cost for exhibitors or attendees.
