Veterans Day parade honors military

- Kristin Swain | Sun

The city of Anna Maria honored active military service men and women along with our veterans during a moving Veterans Day flag ceremony held at City Pier Park on Monday.

Music for the event was provided by the Pine Park Quartet and members of the United States Marine Corps.

The day’s events kicked off with the Old Soldiers and Sailors Veterans Day Parade. Following the flag ceremony, an ice cream social was hosted by the Anna Maria Island Historical Society and sponsored in part by Dips Ice Cream Shop and the Roser Food Pantry.
