Veterans Day 2018 Events and Parades Culver City Los Angeles San Pedro CA
Veterans Day is a time to commemorate the sacrifice our military veterans have made for our country, and it’s wonderful there are so many events in the community where we can show thanks. In the Los Angeles County area, which includes events in cities like Culver City, San Pedro, Los Angeles and Pacoima, we have a variety of Veterans Day events and parades on tap which we will detail in our quick guide to activities to attend and things to do during this national observance.

Also, here’s an interesting fact – this year marks the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day, as the observance originated in 1919 with the end of World War I, also known as Armistice Day, and the date of Nov. 11 gradually became an official day to honor our veterans.

Read on for our handy guide to the observance which honors all military veterans, living or dead, and which occurs on Sunday Nov. 11, but which is observed on Monday Nov. 12, 2018!
