WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The city of Westfield honored veterans with a parade and ceremony held on Veterans Day Monday morning.
There was a great turnout for Westfield’s Veterans Day parade. The events in Westfield began at 10:30 a.m. at Westfield Bank on Elm Street and proceeded to Parker Memorial Park on West Silver Street for the ceremony at 11 a.m.
22News caught up with the nearly mile-long parade on Broad Street. Westfield Veteran’s Services hosted the parade that ended with a ceremony at Elizabeth Parker Memorial Park.
22News spoke with a Vietnam veteran, who was thrilled with this display of community support.
“Well, today when someone comes home and everyone knows about it, the veterans no matter what group, go to the airport and greet that individual,” said Tom Pirnie.
Monday marked the last Westfield Veterans Day parade that Don Humason will attend as a state senator. Humason was elected mayor last week and will preside over the parade as mayor next year.
