Mesquite will celebrate its veterans and all those around the world on Saturday, Nov. 2.

The day begins at 7:45 a.m. with a memorial service at the Mesquite cemetery on Hillside Drive. Everyone is invited and should wear warm clothing.

The festivities continue with a parade on Mesquite Boulevard beginning at 10 a.m. The parade will start at Willow Drive near City Hall and continue down to Arrowhead Lane. Bring the kids, chairs, and lots of good ol’ American spirit.

Top off the day with an old-fashioned Hangar Dance like they did back then. Head up to the Mesquite Airport on Kitty Hawk Drive and enjoy the food, music and friends.
