(Douglasville, GA) - Parade applications are now being accepted for the annual Douglas County Veterans Day Lighted Parade happening the night of Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. through Douglasville, Georgia.
This year, Operation Greenlight for Veterans in Douglas County, will be incorporated into the parade. On October 18th, the Douglas County BOC voted unanimously to support Operation Greenlight for Veterans in Douglas County to honor and recognize them for their service.

“I’m thrilled to announce we have commitments from various local high school marching bands, and we are beyond excited for this year’s parade to honor our veterans,” said Rick Martin, Director of Communications & Community Relations for Douglas County and in charge of the parade. “Douglas County’s tradition of hosting the parade allows residents to come out and line the streets to say “thank you” to those who have obtained, preserved, and protected citizens’ freedoms.”
Parade coordinators encourage Veteran groups, military, and reserve units, along with JROTC members and marching bands, to register. Applications will be accepted up to the day of the event, with special on-site registration.
