Active and retired military personnel are invited to bring their families for a relaxing weekend of activities. Weekend highlights include family-friendly events at the American Legion and the Tybee Salutes Heroes Parade on Saturday, November 15th at 1:00pm.
The Tybee Salutes Heroes Parade will be going down Butler Avenue beginning at 1:00pm. We’ll start out on 14th Street to Butler Avenue, then hear North to Memorial Park (5th Street and Butler Ave.). There will be a ceremony held at the Veterans Memorial at Memorial Park, between 4th and 5th Streets on Butler Avenue, directly after the parade.
