Toms River Veteran’s Day Parade Cancelled This Year
It's something we've done for years. After we get off the air, we would walk to Washington Street, and watch the Red, White, and Blue take over Downtown Toms River.
Because of Covid-19 there will be no Veteran's Parade in Toms River this year. According to Toms River Shorebeat, Toms River will host an outdoor ceremony for the community.
The Toms River Veteran's Day Ceremony will take place Wednesday November 11th, 2020 at 10:30 am at the Protectors of Freedom Sculpture located at Bea Lea Park. The parade is unable to happen due to the state guidelines on large social guidelines.
With proper social distancing the community will be able to attend. There will be a military fly-over, wreath laying, and honored guests and speakers. The Mayor of Toms River, Mo Hill, has said, "Although we will not be able to gather for parades and large celebrations on this Veteran’s Day, we all need to pause and reflect on the service and dedication of our veterans who have defended our freedoms at home and around the world and those who ‘stand the watch’ today.”
WHERE: The Protectors of Freedom Sculpture - 570 Bay Avenue, Toms River

**Incase there is inclement weather the ceremony will take place at 33 Washington Street, Toms River - in the L. Manual Hirshblond Meeting Room in the Toms River Municipal Building.**
Thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and our freedom. To the men and women that served and still continue to serve, "Thank You".
