Pamlico County Veteran’s
Day Parade

Pamlico County Schools Marching Hurricanes

A crisp, cool, and patriotic day awaited over 30 groups and organizations
marching in the annual Pamlico County Veteran’s Day Parade held Saturday. With attendance and entrants down in recent years for this event, a concentrated effort was made by the County to encourage more participation in this years Parade to honor those who served in the military and there was a noticeable increase this year compared to the last few years. Law enforcement vehicles and fire trucks from several Pamlico community fire stations were there along with the always reliable (and Great sounding) Pamlico County School’s Marching Hurricanes.

The Stonewall Methodist Church, one of several local churches

Antique auto owners cruised and bikers from the Bayboro Chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association and others revved up and rode on the cool morning to honor our vets. Several local churches, PCC, The Pamlico Library and the Woodmen of the World were also represented.
Smokey the Bear was chill in a Forestry Service Truck and The Pamlico Dazzling Dancers showed off some hot moves on a blustery day.

Pamlico County Horseman's Association

The Pamlico County Horseman’s Association brought out their finest saddles as well as a manure removal squad and rode to honor those who served. And of course, there were guests of Honor, The Veteran’s, some walking and others riding on bus transportation provided by Camp Seafarer or the DAV vehicle, led by members of the Pamlico County High School Navy ROTC color guard. Hopefully this year will be the beginning of a trend, with more and more participants and spectators in future years turning out to honor those who served.
